Lee Blackett Names Side for Final Home Game vs Sale Sharks

Date: 19 May 2022

 

Lee Blackett has named his side to face Sale Sharks at Coventry Building Society Arena for our final Gallagher Premiership home game of the season.

There is one personnel change to the starting line-up from our Semi-Final clash last weekend against Lyon Rugby.

Ali Crossdale returns to the starting line up at full-back, joined by Josh Bassett and Francois Hougaard to complete the back three line-up.

For the final time at Coventry Building Society Arena, Malakai Fekitoa and Jimmy Gopperth form the centre partnership.  

The half-back partnership remains unchanged with Dan Robson at scrum half and Charlie Atkinson at 10.

Brad Shields is joined in the back row by England call ups Alfie Barbeary and Jack Willis.

Captain Joe Launchbury lines up alongside Elliott Stooke in the second row, whilst the front row remains unchanged with Tom West, Gabriel Oghre and Biyi Alo.

Robin Hislop is joined on the bench this weekend by Dan Frost, Elliot Millar-Mills, James Gaskell, Tom Willis, Will Porter, Rob Miller and Paolo Odogwu
