Faf drops in for Sharks win

PREMIERSHIP WRAP: World Cup-winning Springbok Francois de Klerk produced another masterclass as Sale Sharks strengthened their play-off push.

ADVERTISEMENT

De Klerk landed a penalty and a drop-goal, while Manu Tuilagi made a try-scoring return to Welford Road as the Sharks beat Leicester 40-31.

The England centre left Leicester in July after rejecting a 25 percent pay cut, and he bit the Tigers with a first-half touch down to help Sale reclaim second place behind runaway league leaders Exeter

It was a trademark Tuilagi score, illustrating enviable power and strength as Leicester defenders were left scattered.

The Tuilagi try highlighted a dominant first 50 minutes by Sale, with fly-half AJ MacGinty and captain Jono Ross also claiming tries.

* Earlier Owen Farrell was sent off for Saracens as Wasps recorded a famous 28-18 victory at Allianz Park.

The scores were level on the hour mark when the England flyhalf was dismissed for a horrible high hit on Charlie Atkinson.

Atkinson, an 18-year-old academy back, on the occasion of his second Premiership start, was grounded for a lengthy period before being helped from the field of play.

Farrell made an immediate admission to referee Christophe Ridley who wasted little time in giving him his marching orders that could rule him out of the Champions Cup quarterfinal against Leinster later this month.

It proved to be the game’s big turning point entering the final quarter as Tom Willis drove over for his first Premiership try and Jimmy Gopperth, on the occasion of his 100th club appearance, took his points haul to 23 as Wasps kept their focus firmly on achieving a top-four finish with a seventh win in eight games under head coach Lee Blackett.
