David Seymour has said Sale Sharks are relishing the opportunity to set the record straight when they come up against Saracens this weekend.
It will be the second time Sale have faced the London club in eight days, after suffering a 50-3 loss at Allianz Park last weekend.
“You have these big losses from time to time, and you have to play the week after so you have to put things right,” said the flanker.
“We have an opportunity to right our wrongs this weekend. It’s a big challenge but we’ll go through the video, work on what needs working on and we’ll go again.”
The Sharks have now suffered five consecutive losses, but the ex-Saracens forward insists a good performance on Sunday can help build momentum before they return to Premiership action.
“This weekend is all about the performance, because Saracens are the best in Europe at the moment,” Seymour admitted.
“Playing against such a strong side, you get to see where you’re at, and we were a long way off at the weekend. We have an opportunity to take some momentum into the next block of Premiership fixtures.”
Following their poor run of form, the 32-year-old issued a message of reassurance to the fans: “We’re doing every we can to get things back on track.
“Playing at home makes a massive difference, and the crowd this year has been really vocal which is great for us – from the warm up, to running out and then on to the final whistle.
“We’re not happy with this form and I’m certain they’re not either, but everyone here is working their socks off to turn it around. Their support means everything to us.”
