Good use of statistics, Tigger. It's a shame you didn't give the whole picture.
The Aviva Premiership, season 2011/2
Tries for: conceded: difference:
Leicester Tigers 59 40 +19
Harlequins 44 26 +18
Northampton Saints 42 23 +19
Gloucester 38 37 + 1
Sale Sharks 38 43 - 5
London Irish 35 38 - 3
Saracens 30 25 + 5
Exeter 30 30 0
Bath 29 25 + 4
London Wasps 27 36 - 9
Newcastle Falcons 22 54 -32
Worcester 17 34 -17
So, in the Premiership, Sale are 4th= in terms of tries scored.
However, for tries against only Newcastle come of worse.
Sale are 4th worst in terms of try difference.
Conclusion: Sale might be scoring tries, but are also conceding a bucket load. I suspect that it is this, tries against, which Mr. Diamond felt was unacceptable.
Yes, the season isn't over yet, and that table could change considerably - for better or worse.
