Cockbain starts for Sharks

Lock Brent Cockbain, who came on as a replacement against Leicester Tigers last Sunday, is named in the starting fifteen for Sale Sharks’ visit to Leeds Carnegie on Sunday (3 p.m.).

Sharks team:

Julien Laharrague; Mark Cueto, Chris Mayor, Luke McAlister, Oriol Ripol; Charlie Hodgson, Richard Wigglesworth; Lionel Faure, Scott Lawson, Stuart Turner, Brent Cockbain, Chris Jones, Jason White (captain), Magnus Lund, Sebastien Chabal.
