A great many Sale supporters have already made the trip to Barton to watch Salford play. I always look for their results first, I'd say there is a lot more chance of Salford picking up rugby supporters who want to watch the game all year than there is of Reds supporters going to a Sale match, but I'd love it if there were some supporters who wanted to watch Union. You never know, you may actually enjoy it. One game but two different animals, nothing wrong with trying it out is there?
We, as supporters, have no say in where the club play, but I don't believe any of us want to see the club make the same mistakes it did when moving into Edgeley Park, and the supporters do recognise that those mistakes WERE made, but not by the supporters or players of Sale Sharks.
The fact that the stadium is called The City of Salford stadium means it will be easily recognisable as to where it is and who plays there. Even though I'm very unlikely to make many home matches, I do want it to be a success for BOTH clubs.
I can't see there being too many fixture clashes as there aren't at Quins, so it proves that someone at both the RFU & RFL does look at the possibilities of this happening.
The belief that Union is trying to crush League is surely not realistic (if it ever was). what would that gain? The future will probably bring a closer relationship between the two codes and that can only be for the benefit of everyone.
