David Seymour has said that Sale’s 41-3 win over Cardiff Blues will continue to help build the growing confidence at the club.
The Sharks ran in seven tries against the Welsh side on Friday, which means they’re still in contention for a semi-final spot as we approach the last round of pool fixtures.
“Last weekend we had a good lead and let it slip a little, so it was nice to get a much more convincing win this weekend,” said Seymour.
“It was the same in 2013 when we reached the final, we had a difficult year then but the LV Cup, as it was then, helped build confidence back up.”
Sale are battling Ospreys and Exeter Chiefs for a spot in the knockout rounds, and take on Harlequins this weekend who have already qualified for the semi-finals.
“Friday night was good a win, but we have to realise it wasn’t Cardiff strongest side,” said the flanker.
“Harlequins will be a different kind of challenge. We need to tweak a few areas still, tighten up our discipline in both attack and defence, and then we’ll be in a good position going in to the weekend.”
Seymour also shared a thought on the Curry brothers, having been partnered on the other flank by Tom and later replaced by Ben.
The twins have made a seamless transition from academy to first team rugby this season, and their performances have earned them both a place in the England U20s Six Nations squad.
“They’ve both done outstandingly well whenever they’ve come in this season,” explain the 32-year-old.
“To be playing at that level already, at such a young age, it’s exciting for the future and it’s great for the club to have them on board.”
