Going to be a totally different game to the last 2 i think, as Sale offer a quite different challenge.

Jono is going to need his tactical boots on kicking into any territory with their back line. Of course we may keep with our running game, but as mentioned earlier in the week, if we keep offering up Pens in kicking range McGinty of Faf will kick us to death.

Bizarrely, a win for wins sake will be all that matters, although to wipe out the memory of last season's draw that should never have been, and the loss they gave us at the AJ would be good additional reasons.

I'm sure GG and Co will keep the team focused, and all being well, Saturday will feel very pleasant for Warrior followers.

Diamond's latest sanction means he can not be present at Sale's Premiership games against Northampton and Worcester, and also their European Rugby Challenge Cup tie against Cardiff Blues.

We can’t possibly have another 15-1 penalty count but yes a number of these were dumb so we need to cut these out.

There is actually expectation on their shoulders now, a very different type of pressure, so we will see how they handle it.

Expect Sale will mention their sick note boys... Yarde and Beaumont in particular are significant absentees.

Shame for Williams and Durutalo.Expect them to feature in the double header v Oyannox.
Where's the specialist back row cover in the replacements? Phillips? Isn't he second row?
Agreed,great team again we've put out.

Should be a cracker!

Whoops, I read as a touchline ban not a stadium ban, I wonder if he will travel with the team?

That's a quality Sale side, JOC will be much better at 15. Needs to be won in the forwards as the backlines are both fantastic.

De Klerk vs Hougaard and van Rensburg vs Mills will be intense.

CSW will play in the back row if needed. Suppose he's fancied over Durutalo at the moment.

We have played a few games with both CSW and Phillips on the bench. I recall CSW played blindside against Saints. Weird that Gold and the WN talked up Durutalo for him not to feature.

I believe Diamond has a stadium ban.

Also interested to see JOC and RJVR in the flesh, heard good things.

That's a good sale side, I can't say I'm sorry we're not facing Beaumont, great player, was it last season he tore us apart at will?

It's not going to be easy, here's hoping for another performance like we've had the last couple of weeks.

The consistency of selection hopefully means we see some more great combination play, upon rewatching the saints game I was impressed how well fasoliva and Spencer combined for example.

Isnt it funny that the longer the season goes on, the less injuries we have? They seem to have massively eased off, with the main ones now being long term ones sustained at the start of the season or concussion?

Wonder why?

I didn't think I was superstitious but your post has me scared, I think you need to touch wood or something...

Perhaps statistically we had the season's worth of injuries in the first few months and now it's just balancing out.

Sale have not won away from home in the Premiership since a trip to Bristol in October 2016.

Worcester, who have won their last two Premiership games, are looking for a third in a row for the first time since March 2016.

Something has gotta give tonight.

Goes to show we're not the only team to struggle away from home I guess.

So many of our injuries seemed like bad luck I'm reluctant to blame the training, maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Yes, Alo is injured. Might need him now though as Nick didn't look good.
