Cueto returns but no Sheridan for Sale

Sale Sharks welcome back Magnus Lund and start with Mark Cueto in the number 15 jersey for the crucial EDF Energy Cup game at Leicester Tigers on Friday, 30th November (kick off 7.40 p.m.).

Flanker Lund has missed four games since coming off injured in the game at Cardiff in the same competition.


Mark Cueto also starts for Sale Luke McAlister and Charlie Hodgson in the backline.


Sharks’ Director of Rugby Philippe Saint Andre said, ” This is a big game at Leicester – like a Quarter Final.


We face a huge challenge in matching the Tigers’ physicality, but we’ve won four games on the trot and are confident.”


Strangely Andrew Sheridan who recently signed a new three year deal with Sale and was forced to withdraw for the Barbarians match after Sale said they needed him for this match, is not named in the team at all.


One would have thought that if Saint Andre was serious about matching the Tigers physicality as he says, Sheridan would be the perfect player.


Sale Sharks team v Leicester:


Mark Cueto; Julien Laharrague, Luke McAlister, Rudi Keil, Rory Lamont; Charlie Hodgson, Sililo Martens; Lionel Faure, Scott Lawson, Eifion Roberts, Ignacio Fernandez Lobbe, Christian Day, Jason White (captain), Magnus Lund, Nathan Bonner Evans.


Replacements Sebastien Bruno, Stuart Turner, Dean Schofield, Sean Cox, James Jones, Richard Wigglesworth, Chris Mayor.
