Sale explain ‘getting rinsed’ reason why Tom Curry won’t face Saracens


Tom Curry will not be making his eagerly awaited return when Sale visit Saracens next Saturday looking for a result that takes them to the Premier League semi-finals. Saturday's clash at StoneX is a repeat of last year's final at Twickenham.

However, the Sharks will go into the rematch without the fit-again England rower, although they know that a loss to the second-placed London side will leave them out of the play-off picture on the final day of the regular season.

Carey has not played any rugby since England won the Rugby World Cup bronze medal last October over Argentina in Paris. After that tournament, he returned to training in Sale and expected to spend a busy winter with the Manchester club.

However, he soon stopped training and specialist medical opinion led to him undergoing hip surgery – a very big deal for someone who is still only 25 years old.

At the time, Carey was expected to be ruled out for the rest of the season, but his rehabilitation has been so positive that there was talk of him being set to play in the win over Leicester last Friday at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Carey himself nipped that potential return in the bud over a Thursday morning coffee with his club chairman Alex Sanderson and instead of penciling in this weekend's huge clash with Saracens as his return date, it was instead decided to wait until a potential semi-final on the weekend. From June 1.

When asked in his final media conference on Tuesday afternoon if Curry was available to play for StoneX, Sanderson said: “I would call him that, no, he's not.

“It's not far but unfortunately, he wasn't able to make it. We haven't had enough exposure to rugby with him for him to feel confident but he's moving very well – he's having a pre-season week.

“He seems to be flushing and that's what we wanted to happen to him. He came in this morning, and I saw him and I asked him, 'How are you feeling?'

“Really tough,” he said. 'Well, you asked about that.' He was making additions at the end of the session today, so he is there or about to be. “We will make a call if and when we give ourselves a chance to play in the semi-finals.”

Sanderson explained what happened after the initial excitement last week that Curry might return to face the Tigers. “We were talking last Wednesday night because he was moving so well, and Nav (Sandhu, Sale's physiotherapist) was so excited. 'How good is this? I'm back mate!'

“It was about 5pm on Wednesday, and then I got a text at 7.30pm and he was like, 'Can we meet for coffee?' And then it was just a proper, emotionless conversation. Like, what's best for Tom Curry?”

“I think 18 months ago, before he had back-to-back hamstring pulls and all this stuff with the pelvic girdle and hip girdle, he said he probably would have gone and done it. [played].

“We feel this [not playing] It's growth in terms of his maturity and he's doing the right thing for him which is making sure he doesn't play below par and has a lot more years to come instead of burning himself out.

With England set to tour after the end of the club season, taking on Japan on June 22 in Tokyo before traveling to face the All Blacks twice in July, has there been a conversation with Carey about the possibility of going on the trip as part of Steve Borthwick's squad despite being unable to return to the club? Call him next?

“We're (talking) from a medical perspective, and I haven't talked from a rugby and coaching perspective yet.

“I brought it up last Thursday at the Gaels in Knutsford, and he said: ‘Let’s just focus on preparing for a potential semi-final, and then we’ll talk about the summer.’ So he’s living in the moment, and doesn’t want to focus too far ahead.
