My professional career began in The North of England at the newly rebranded “Sale Sharks”. They were previously “Sale”. Went on to become just “Sharks”. The nomenclature isn’t particularly of relevance to this article.
Sale Sharks will miss the services of Josh Beaumont for three months after the lock sustained a bicep injury during the recently concluded Aviva Premiership encounter against Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop on Friday.
Billy Vunipola was helped from the field in the closing stages of the first half after catching knee in an awkward position as Saracens continued their unbeaten home record over Sale with an emphatic 41-13 bonus-point win at the Allianz Park on Saturday.
