Team to play Sale Sharks

Director of Rugby Dai Young has named his team to play Sale Sharks at Adams Park on Saturday 1 March, kick off 3pm.

Young has made four changes to the starting line-up that took to the field last weekend, which see Joe Simpson, Josh Bassett, Tommy Bell and Sam Jones all return to the starting team for this Saturday’s battle between sixth and seventh in the Aviva Premiership table.

There are also a number of changes among the substitutes. Neil Cochrane, Phil Swainston, Tom Palmer and Andy Goode all return to the matchday 23 after spending time on the sidelines through injury, while Nathan Hughes and Charlie Davies join them bench, having started last weekend.

Ahead of the game, Dai Young said “We know how important the game is to both teams. The result will by no means settle the battle for the top six but the winner of the game will definitely have an advantage going into the final run of games. Our focus is to back up a good performance last week with another strong display and hopefully the right result this Saturday.”
