Cueto to miss Sale Sharks clash against Falcons

Sale Sharks captain Mark Cueto says that although he has regained fitness after limping off in Sunday’s Aviva Premiership victory over Saracens but will miss this weekend’s match.

Cueto says that due to the arrangement between England and the Premiership clubs Cueto will be rested for this weekend’s clash against Newcastle Falcons.

“It was cramp in my calf and despite extensive treatment on the field it wouldn’t settle down so Pete Anglesea made the substitution.” said Cueto.

“We needed 15 fit men to finish the game against Sarries. I am fine now but won’t be able to play on Friday at Newcastle as I have to rest under the England EPS system.”

On the win over Saracens Mark said, “We had a dream first half. Pete told us to go out and express ourselves which we did. Saracens came back at as in the second half and lets be respectful here, Sarries are in third place, are a good side and have quality all over the field.

“We scored three tries on the day to their one and being honest we are delighted with the way things have changed round so quickly.

” Pete and the coaching staff have worked around the clock and I am sure there are more performances like that to come.”

On his own try Mark commented, ” I have been stuck in the 60’s for ages and now I have scored my 70th Premiership try I have Stan’s (Steve Hanley’s 75 try record in my sights). “

“He has been giving me stick for a while now that I will never get to 76!”
