Sale Sharks have a massive Aviva Premiership game on Saturday against Saracens at The AJ Bell Stadium, kick off at 2pm.
Sale Sharks have won their last two matches in the Aviva Premiership and obtained their first maximum point victory since round 7 in beating London Welsh at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford on Sunday. The Sharks have lost only one of their last six Aviva Premiership fixtures at AJ Bell Stadium, 30-32 to Leicester on 27th December.
Saracens have lost only one of their last five encounters in the competition: 23-24 at Gloucester in round 13. Saracens have only won once away from home in the Aviva Premiership since September, and that came at Newcastle in December.
The two teams have already met on three occasions this year home and away in the European Champions Cup as well as the Premiership Rugby meeting at Allianz Park, all three encounters were won by Saracens, although Sharks could be deemed unlucky after a final minute decision went against them in the European Cup defeat at The AJ Bell Stadium in December, when they were camped on the Saracens line.
Sale's only victory over Saracens in Premiership Rugby in their last twelve matches since 2008 was 28-22 at Edgeley Park on 2nd January 2011 which coincided with Steve Diamond's return to the club.
Dean Richards will be refereeing his 78th game this weekend.
It will be Dan Braid's 50th appearance for the club this weekend, and he was won 29 of those games, drawn once and lost only 19 of those games. He's scored 15 tries for the club since joining the club in January 2013.
Come down to the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday, and enjoy the pre-match atmosphere with Stolen Haven performing live on stage from 12pm. You could play against a player on the newly released Rugby 2015 PS4 game in the Fans Bar and Tailored Office Suite before the match, and you can get the chance to meet Sharky and Finlay!
