It wasn't quite as it seemed. This was a competitive game. The Gogledd Cymru side stepped up to the pace of professional rugby. They showed improvement and there were flashes of the shape and flair which are an important part of their coaching ethos.
There is enormous benefit to the Gogledd Cymru side in games against opposition of this standard. It is only by seeing over the horizon that the length of the road ahead dawns.
One major difference was the clinical way in which Sale punished mistakes with points.
The crowd of 5-600 people provided an excellent atmosphere, supporting the home side every time they broke the opposition line. It was an entertaining evening in Gogledd Cymru's Premiership Venue at Parc Eirias, Colwyn Bay.
