Sale Sharks visit Allianz Park on Saturday afternoon looking for their first win against Saracens in seven attempts.
The last time Sharks beat Saracens was on 2nd January 2011 in what was Steve Diamond's first game back at the club.
In both fixtures last season Sharks took a losing bonus point, losing 10-15 at the AJ Bell Stadium in February and 19-24 at Allianz Park. Many believe Sharks were unlucky not to win at Saracens when a Charlie Ingall try was disallowed by the TMO who went back seven phases in his investigation. Danny Cipriani scored 13 points in that game and in doing so recorded a 'full house' with a try/conversion/drop goal and penalty.
Saracens are one of only two sides who have made a perfect start to the new season and their last defeat at home was against London Irish in February.
Match referee on Saturday is JP Doyle who is officiating in his 84th Premiership game.
SALE SHARKS NEXT HOME GAME IS ON SUNDAY 5TH OCTOBER WHEN WE ENTERTAIN WASPS IN ROUND FIVE OF THE AVIVA PREMIERSHIP. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AND CAN BE PURCHASED BY PHONING 08444-994-994.
