An electric performance from hat-trick hero, Marland Yarde, inspired the Sharks to an impressive win, moving them to second in the Gallagher Premiership.

Match Report:

Leicester opened the scoring through Reid’s penalty inside the first three minutes, as the away side began the game the livelier team. Sale were penalised again a few minutes later, but Reid missed the chance to dispatch his second of the night, with his effort hitting the post.

Sale searched for the first try of the game in the following ten minutes, with the du Preez brothers’ bustling runs causing problems for the Tigers. Rob du Preez looked to have set Yarde clean through after a great break from the Sharks, but play was stopped due to obstruction in the build-up, much to the frustration of the home side.

The Sharks managed to take the lead in the 30th minute, as Bryn Evans charged down Van Poortvliet’s attempted clearance from the try-line and ran in unopposed. Rob du Preez’s conversion fell just short.

The combination of Rob du Preez and Yarde wasn’t going to be denied for the second time of the night, as the South African put the electric winger through to charge over and double the home side’s lead. Rob du Preez was good for the conversion this time.

The home side finished the half in style, as Coenie used his power to crash over from short range and Rob du Preez added the extras again. This gave the Sharks a 19-3 lead.

Rob du Preez extended Sale’s advantage with a penalty, as the Sharks looked hungry for more points on the board with 25 minutes left to play.

The du Preez and Yarde duo continued to flourish as Rob sent Marland through a gap in the Tigers’ defence at short range to get his second try of the night. Rob followed up with a beauty of a curler through the posts.

Yarde showed his killer instincts again as he capitalised on a sublime kick from Sam James to get over for his hat-trick, sealing off a brilliant individual performance. Rob du Preez added the extras, capping off an emphatic 36-3 victory.  


Post-Match Thoughts:

Despite the Sale finishing off the first half with three emphatic tries, Steve Diamond believed the 30 minutes that preceded were just as important:

“Well I thought it was the first 30 minutes if I’m being honest where we kept the ball and had 70% possession. They didn’t have an answer to that really and we played against the wind really well. Second half was not dissimilar, we just tied to stay from getting frustrated and work the field position and get an opportunity to score the bonus point. But again, the main thing was to get the win, that’s why they kicked the goal which was good to see, but yeah delighted with it.


It’s no secret that Sale are spoilt for choice with world class wingers and Dimes reiterated this healthy competition when discussing Marland Yarde’s hat-trick:

“We’ve got four good wingers: Denny, Marland, Ashy and Byron. To stay in the spot, you’ve got to score tries and I can’t see him being dropped.

The Sharks travel to Gloucester on Friday and will be looking to avenge their opening day defeat and continue their title charge in the process.
