WILL Cliff says Sale Sharks are determined to build on last Friday's opening Anglo-Welsh Cup win at Worcester when they host Saracens tomorrow (8pm).

The scrum-half produced an excellent display and scored a fine first-half try as a largely inexperienced Sale side secured a deserved 24-21 success at Sixways.

Now the Sharks are looking to maintain their momentum against Sarries, who were edged out in their opening group match at home to Harlequins.

"Obviously in terms of this season it's still very early days, but we enjoyed the match at Worcester and everybody is really looking forward to the Saracens game," Cliff told the club's website.

"It's a good competition to be involved in and we made the final once before when I was here in my first spell back in 2013.

"So if we can get another good result this week then it will set us up nicely in terms of the Anglo-Welsh Cup going forward and it will also be great for our momentum going back into the Premiership."

The 29-year-old was the oldest starter in what was a youthful Sharks line-up but was full of praise for the way the team went about their business.

"It all started in the week with the enthusiasm the young lads have brought to the group and I thought we had a really good blend with a few of the experienced lads on hand too," he added.

"The message all week was about learning your role and everyone really did their job and all the boys who made their debuts off their bench later on really contributed as well.

"The North West has got a big talent pool and as a club Sale have always encouraged young players so to see the young lads come in and do so well was great.

"From a personal point of view, it was to great to be out there as I have been champing at the bit to start.

"I just wanted to go out there, enjoy it and get some rugby in my legs and with all of the group playing so well they just made it easy for me."
