Redpath: “Hopefully we can turn the corner”
2:05pm Tuesday 16th October 2012 in Sport
SALE Sharks director of rugby Bryan Redpath hailed his side's character after they ended a run of six straight defeats with victory over Cardiff Blues on Sunday.
"We've been on the wrong end of these results," said Redpath. "We created two great chances in the first 25 minutes but in the next 15 minutes we conceded three soft tries, and suddenly we're thinking deja vu.
"I said to the players at half-time we were staring down the barrel of a gun. We had to go out with the right mindset to win the game.
“It's been a tough six weeks. We've taken a lot of flak, quite rightly so in many ways, but hopefully we can turn the corner. The next two games are huge for us."
Redpath was also full of praise for Cipriani following his game-changing cameo. "It was great to see him perform like that and hopefully it will give us a huge confidence boost," he said. "Hopefully Danny and the team can kick on from that. His attacking flair has never been in question, but he had three great kicks for field position and he made his tackles when he needed to, and that was just as important."
