Sale Sharks Team News for Exeter Chiefs

Sale Sharks Team News for Exeter Chiefs

Sale Sharks players are ready and fully motivated ahead of their Round 22 game tomorrow against Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership.

Exeter Chiefs need to win to keep their top four hopes alive and Sale need a bonus point win and Wasps to lose at London Irish to snatch sixth place in the Premiership.

Steve Diamond has named an unchanged starting lineup with Nathan Hines & Mark Cueto making their final appearances before retiring. There is one change to the bench, with Mark Easter coming in.

Ahead of the game Steve Diamond said, "We’ve got a lot to play for. We're in an unlikely position where if we win the game, and get a bonus point, against one of the top performing teams, we could, if results go our way, get into sixth spot!

"Since Christmas we've lost two or three crucial games – whether that is the quality of the squad, or the opposition playing better than us on the day is debatable. We will be disappointed if we don't make into the Champions Cup."

Team: 15. Tom Arscott, 14. Tom Brady, 13. Johnny Leota, 12. Sam Tuitupou, 11. Mark Cueto, 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Chris Cusiter, 1. Eifion Lewis Roberts, 2. Tommy Taylor, 3. Vadim Cobilas, 4. Jonathan Mills, 5. Nathan Hines, 6. Dan Braid (capt.), 7. David Seymour, 8. Josh Beaumont

Replacements: 16. Marc Jones, 17. Ross Harrison, 18. Ciaran Parker, 19. Michael Paterson 20. Mark Easter, 21. Will Cliff, 22. Joe Ford, 23. Mike Haley
