Sale Sharks face Harlequins at the AJ Bell Stadium next Saturday (25th April Kick Off 2pm) in what can only be described as the 'Game of the Season'.
The season has only three regular rounds left and Sale know there must be no slip ups as they attempt to qualify for next seasons European Rugby Champions Cup.
The Sharks have to play Harlequins and Newcastle at home and then travel to Exeter for Round 22. Harlequins will be targeting the game at the AJ Bell Stadium to keep their European hopes alive and also to avenge the 16-12 defeat Sale inflicted on them at The Stoop in November, thanks to a Dan Braid try. Quins are five points behind Sharks in the placings at the moment and have to play Bath at The Stoop and Newcastle away.
The hunt for European Rugby Champions Cup places for next season is now more intense than ever before.
The game against Harlequins will see the head to head between Danny Cipriani and Nick Evans who are two of the best fly halves in the competition. Both are lying high in the points table this year, with Danny at 6th scoring 140 points, and Nick in 8th scoring 130 points. Both players influence games on a regular basis.
Harlequins will also have England captain Chris Robshaw playing opposite Sharks captain Dan Braid and Nick Easter, who is playing some of the best rugby of his career, will be up against Josh Beaumont. It should make for a superb battle.
