Cueto excited about Premiership milestone

Mark Cueto will play his 150th Premiership Game for Sale Sharks on Friday evening when Sale Sharks host Gloucester at Edgeley Park.

Cueto made his senior debut for Sale Sharks in 2001 when the team played against Bristiol in Bristol.

The England winger enjoyed a rich vein of form during the England internationals but was not able to add to his try tally for England.

Cueto picked up a knock on his head playing against South Africa at the weekend but has recovered.

Commenting on the Autumn Internationals, Mark said, “Mixed feelings really, after the wins against Australia and Samoa we were really looking forward to the South Africa game, but it didn’t happen for us.

“From my own point of view I have enjoyed running with ball in hand during the four games and helping create things for the team.”

Asked about his head injury Mark laughed and said, “People should know by now that when I get a cut on my head I am fine.


“I had a few stitches after the game but am raring to go.”

Commenting on Friday evenings game against Gloucester mark said, ” Its going to be a big game, Gloucester are one of the form teams in the Premiership and we need a win to bridge the gap and help us move towards the top half of the table.

“I read over the weekend that Steve Hanley would like me to beat his record of 75 Premiership tries and I would dearly like to close the gap on Friday with a couple against Gloucester, if selected. “

“There is a lot of rugby to be played this season and am sure we can give the fans plenty to cheer about.”
