12:16pm Friday 21st February 2014 in Sport
MARK Cueto is looking forward to achieving another milestone in his illustrious career when he runs out onto the pitch against Worcester Warriors at Sixways tomorrow for his 200th appearance in the Premiership as a Sale Sharks player.
He already holds the record for the number of career tries with 84, the first of which was scored on his Premiership debut, away to Bristol back in 2001.
Mark broke team mate Steve Hanley’s record of 75 tries when he crossed the line against Exeter Chiefs in February 2013 and this season he has already scored six in 13 appearances this season (three at the AJ Bell Stadium and three on his travels).
Mark said: “ I am looking forward to running out at Sixways, it’s another milestone in my career that I have enjoyed thoroughly since my debut at Bristol all those years ago “I have had the pleasure of playing with and against some great players and I am still enjoying my rugby. Hopefully with signing a new deal, I will be able to build on the 84 tries I have scored in the Premiership.”
