Sale Sharks upset the Scarlets in LV Cup

The Scarlets qualified Anglo Welsh LV Cup even though they lost 19-14 to Sale Sharks at Edgeley Park on Saturday afternoon.

Sale pivot Nick Macleod’s boot was the difference as the hosts held off the
pool leading Scarlets.

The Manchester-based club’s England flanker Hendre Fourie was rewarded for
his efforts by scoring a try on his home debut.

The Scarlets will breath a sigh of relief as the bonus point secured for losing
by less than seven points secured them a semi-final berth.

Fourie’s try came as early as the ninth minute and Welshman Macleod kicked
14 points via four penalties and a conversion to cap a fine all-round display.

The Scarlets points came through a try by Peter Edwards – who barged over the
line after the Scarlets took a quick tap penalty – two penalties by Dan Newton
and another three-pointer by replacement Stephen Jones.
