Members of Manchester’s thriving business community gathered at the XYZ Building in Spinningfields to hear Sale Sharks’ international stars’ review the 2018 Six Nations.
The panel event saw Denny Solomona and Josh Strauss, of England and Scotland respectively, take to the stage at ALL Work & Social, Spinningfields’ latest co-work and event space.
Sale Sharks Commercial Director Mark Cueto MBE hosted the discussion, which was followed by a chance to network.
Themes explored during a review of one of international rugby’s elite competitions were the performance of England and other home nations, along with Solomona and Strauss’s thoughts on modern day rugby and outstanding plays and players during the tournament won by Ireland.
Mark Cueto said: “As the only Premiership rugby club in the North West we always look at new ways of interacting with our corporate supporters and fans. This review of the Six Nations featured insight from two of our many international capped players which I’m sure the audience enjoyed.
“ALL Work & Social is a stunning new space in the beating heart of Manchester’s financial district so was the perfect place to hold a lively debate. Many people from Manchester’s business community attended, plenty of whom got the rare opportunity to pick the brains of current internationals.”
All attendees of the Sale Sharks Six Nations Review were entered into a prize draw to win VIP matchday package, including lunch in Spinningfields, a chauffeur driven car donated by Bentley Knutsford to AJ Bell, and 4 x platinum tickets to a Premiership match.
England international Solomona said during the debate that he’d so far thoroughly enjoyed his first full season with Sale Sharks, while Strauss paid tribute to the Premiership Club ‘for looking after his busy club and country regime’ better than any of his previous teams had.
