Magnus Lund is confident that Sale Sharks’ fortunes will soon change as they continue their hard work in turning their form around.
The flanker, who has 10 England caps to his name, explained how everyone at the club is fully focussed on playing to the best of their ability.
“I think all the players are aware that we’ve not won for a while,” said the 33-year-old.
“Everyone is really focussed on their individual game. We believe that we will get a win very soon, and we’re working hard to get there.”
“Things are improving each week but we’re still bitterly disappointed not to get that win, it would’ve been great for us. If we continue to iron out our mistakes, we won’t be far off.”
The Sharks’ travel to London to face a Harlequins side who sit seventh in the table, but lost out to Worcester Warriors in round 12.
“If we get a win this weekend it’ll be a massive bonus for us, but Quins away is a very big game,” Lund said.
“They’ll be fully aware of our situation, but they also lost at the weekend so they’ll be looking to bounce back from that too. We’ve trained well so far this week, and we believe we can come away with something.”
The flanker also commented on the contrast from last season, when the Sharks boasted a seven game winning streak, to this season, where they go in search of their first win in eight.
“When you’re on that winning run it’s funny how things go your way, and when you’re losing it’s funny how things don’t. But that’s sport, these things happen,” he said.
“Hopefully we can kick-start a winning run and get back on to that pattern. I’m sure we will do soon. We’re working hard and hopefully we’ll get the reward for that.”
He went on to praise the Sale Sharks’ fans: “The players deserve it, the management, and especially the fans. The fans have been great for us even in this tough period, so we will get it right soon.”
