Preview: Leeds Carnegie v Sale Sharks

Leeds achieved a first ever victory over the Sharks in their most recent meeting at Edgeley Park in February.

Leeds Carnegie have managed just the one victory so far this season, 23-9, in Bucharest in the European Challenge Cup two weeks ago. Leeds have not won in Aviva Premiership Rugby since their 12-10 victory against relegated Worcester on 25 April.
Sale Sharks have won their last two games in the European Challenge Cup against Spanish side El Salvador and Italian outfit Petrarca Padova, but in the Premiership the Sharks have won just once since the opening day: 21-17 at home to Harlequins in round three.

Sale have not won away from home in the Premiership since they last visited Headingley Carnegie on 22 November 2009, with a 24-17 scoreline.

Referee: Jerome Garces (FFR, 2nd Premiership game)
