SALE SHARKS 26-18 WASPS (Saturday)

The Wasps hit the homeowner early with a try by Josh Bassett just three minutes into the game. Even though opener Gopperth added a penalty and a try, Sharks ruthlessly lashed out and took the lead on the scoreboard. Du Preez, Yarde, Van Rensburg and Curry were in charge of visiting the rival Ingoal, while Macginty made three of the four conquests.


Although the scoreboard shows parity, Exeter took the game early. An O’Flaherty try at 12 ‘and another by Hill at 30’ put him at the top of the game, one in which the Bears only added three with Sheedy’s foot in the first half. The snap showed Bristol determined to win the match; a converted try by Purdy in the 70th minute and a penalty with one minute to go were not enough to beat the Chiefs, who added another converted conquest and were left with the narrow home victory.


The first minutes of the match were even, both teams analyzing each other’s strategy although Gloucester seemed to risk more than Harlequins. It was the Cherry & White who broke the zero of the score, after the arrival of Ackermann to the ingoal rival on 23 ‘. From there, Quins returned the threat with Northmore’s try but they closed the first half with a penalty per side. The complement, which had a try from Santiago Socino in Gloucester, also respected the parity at the beginning but the performances of Andre Esterhuizen and Danny Care were essential for the visit to take the game.


The homeowner had a dreamy afternoon where everything went well for him. From the start, I bet to add as many times as I could and, as a result, put the score at 3-0 after two minutes. Although it cost him to advance in rival field, which had the return of Matías Orlando and the ownership of Mateo Carreras, he managed to unlock the ball and billed for two in less than seven minutes: Dan Kelly at 31 ‘and Matt Scott at 38’ . When he returned from the break, the dynamics were repeated, this time with tries by Martin and Potter. On the Leicester side, Matías Moroni entered for Scott while Julián Montoya left at 65 ‘.


The first part did not show what was expected in the previous one: they only added one penalty per side. With the score even, the second half showed Saracens in steamroller mode with tries from Lozowski, Woolstencroft and Itoje. The center of the visit was key to the victory of his team by scoring a try, converting the three victories and successfully kicking the sticks in the three existing opportunities.
