Preview for Sunday’s Game vs London Welsh

Sale Sharks travel to play London Welsh at the Kassam Stadium this Sunday, kick off 1pm.

Sharks have won two cup finals at the Kassam (2002 v Pontypridd and 2005 v Pau) and also won a pulsating 80 minute battle there in 2013, 26-25.

London Welsh are still looking for their first win of the season but have recorded losing bonus points in each of their last three games.

Sharks are currently in 8th place only 5 points away from 3rd placed Saracens and the battle for game points this weekend will be as intense as ever in the Aviva Premiership with Wasps playing Quins and Leicester entertaining Gloucester. Potentially a five point win could put Sharks into the top four but Director of Rugby

Steve Diamond is a cautious man and warned his players that they would have to improve dramatically and up their game despite the win over Scarlets last weekend.

Sharks currently have the best yellow card record in the Premiership with four players having spent time in the sin bin. Welsh on the other had are second only to Saracens with nine players being given a ten minute rest!

Two players looking forward to this weekends trip are former Welsh skipper Jonathan Mills and speedy winger Tom Arscott. Tom scored two tries last weekend against Scarlets and will be looking to add to the five he has already scored in the Premiership. Tom scored a hat trick against his former team mates at the AJ Bell Stadium back in September. Also, if Nick Macleod plays this weekend, it will be his 100th appearance in the Aviva Premiership.

Match referee will be Tim Wigglesworth who will be officiating in his 93rd game.
