The most recent Premiership encounter between the two clubs to have been won by the away side was way back in September 2001 when Gloucester won 44-21 at Heywood Road. Gloucester have never won in their seven previous visits to Edgeley Park.
Sale Sharks’ solo victory in their last eight matches in all competitions was 15-12 over Leeds at Edgeley Park on 25 March. The Sharks have recorded just two Aviva Premiership Rugby victories since October.
Gloucester Rugby’s only defeat in any competition since New Year’s Day came two weeks ago at Harlequins in the Premiership.
Referee: Dean Richards (48th Premiership game)
