RECAP: Saracens v Sale Sharks
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our coverage of the Premiership Round 10 encounter between Saracens and Sale Sharks at Allianz Park.
Saracens 14-41 reversal at Harlequins in Round 9 of Premiership Rugby was their heaviest defeat in the competition since losing 23-64 to Wasps at Allianz Park in February 2016. Saracens have won their last six home games in all competitions since their 25-27 loss at home to Northampton in Round 1 of Premiership Rugby.
Sale Sharks have won their last two Premiership Rugby fixtures, at home to Harlequins and away at Exeter, but have not won three on the bounce in the competition since last January. The Sharks victory at The Chiefs in Round 9 of Premiership Rugby ended a six-game losing run on the road in all tournaments.
