Sale Sharks have announced their team for tomorrow afternoon's Heineken Cup game against Cardiff Blues at Cardiff City Stadium
Sale Sharks Head Coach Jason Robinson is looking forward to the game and said, "The group is heading for a thrilling finale and whilst we are in a good position, we can't be complacent."
He added, "Cardiff are a very good side with talented players all over the field. If we don't respect them they will punish us. They were losing semi finalists in a shoot out last year and I am sure Dai Young will have his players fired up for this weekend's game."
Cardiff Blues Head Coach, Dai Young and Jason Robinson played against one another several times in rugby league (Dai for Salford, Jason for Wigan). Dai got one over on Jason in 1996 when Salford beat Wigan in the Challenge Cup at the Willows ending Wigan's eight year domination of the competition.
Jason said, "Dai is a very good coach and the Blues gave us a good game at Edgeley Park back in October. We will be going to Cardiff in a positive frame of mind looking to win the game which would set up a thrilling winner takes all game against Toulouse next weekend at Edgeley Park."
