Preview: Newcastle Falcons v Sale Sharks

Newcastle Falcons have won just one of their last six matches in all competitions: 19-10 at home to London Irish on 18 February. The Falcons are unbeaten in their last four games at Kingston Park, since Exeter won there, 16-10, on 7 January.

Sale Sharks have slipped to back to back defeats to Exeter and Saracens. Sharks’ only away victory in Aviva Premiership Rugby since round three was 16-13 at Bath on 3 December.

Sale took the Premiership encounter with Newcastle on 26 December, but Newcastle exacted revenge in the Anglo-Welsh Cup meeting at Kingston Park on 29 January. The Sharks have never achieved a league double over the Falcons in the same season.

David Rose becomes only the 8th referee to take charge of 100 Premiership matches.
