Leeds take the Wind Out of Sale

The battle for Guinness Premiership survival is really hotting up.

Bottom of the table Leeds travelled to Sale on Friday night and beat their Guinness Premiership neighbours 19-10.

This is the first time Carnegie have beaten Sale in 18 attempts so well done to the boys!

A quick glance at the Guinness Premiership table shows that things are getting a bit tasty down at the bottom:

Leeds' win and Worcester and Sale's losses have really opened up the relegation battle.

Don't forget that at the start of the year Bath were being touted as a team for the drop but they are now up in 6th.

Carnegie are yet to win at home in the Premiership this season, but their narrow 14-9 home defeat by Leicester and now the victory over Sale really makes me think they are turning the corner.

I expect them to climb out of bottom spot over the next few weeks and set up a fascinating season finale.

So which team is your favourite for the drop?



  1. Judging by the Worcester message board, I think they might have a few problems towards the end of the season.

  2. We CAN do and it is all to play for now!

    You going on Sunday to the Buffet 500 thing?
