Beavers Face 'Difficult Test' Away To Sheffield Says Tupai

Beverley make the trip over the Pennines this week to play top of the table Sale FC who got themselves back on track last week against Billingham after being upset at home to Tigers.

“It was disappointing to come away with nothing against Wirral. To lose two of your form players of the season straight after each other really cost us and we lost a bit of direction without Phil (Duboulay) and Rich (Bussey). We were 17-20 down and were starting to make good progress after conceding 20 easy points but they played well and overall deserved their win”.

who will be without Duboulay with a torn hamstring and who will go through the concussion protocol have performed with distinction so far this season and will be a big loss for Beverley. Tupai continued:

“Sale will not be an easy place to go but we are going to turn up and hopefully show some resilience like we did against Waterloo. They (Sale) won’t take us lightly but we can’t go there thinking what the score could be but more or less go there and do our club proud.”.

The Beavers will have a more solid team this time round then the last time Sale played Beverley with the return of Craig Hancock, Antony Maka and Alex McPeake to the pack. In the backs, James Wright could be running out for the first time and also the return of and Mark Harling could strengthen up the Beverley backline.
