  2. Team news

    Sale Sharks v London Irish

    Winger Josh Charnley is set for a first appearance of the season as Sale Sharks face London Irish at home on Friday.

    Captain Will Addison moves to full-back, while lock Bryan Evans returns to face his former club.

    Ben Franks captains London Irish and is one of four changes from their 37-7 defeat by Exeter last Saturday.

    Hooker Dave Porecki, scrum-half Brendan McKibbin and centre Aseli Tikoirotuma also start, while Napolioni Nalaga could make his debut off the bench.

    London Irish director of rugby Nick Kennedy told BBC Radio Berkshire:

    "Sale have excellent home form and Steve Diamond is an excellent motivator there. They're going to be extremely up for the game, especially after losing their opening two games.

    "It's just a game we're really looking forward to - Friday night lights, which we haven't experienced for a while as a club.

    "It'll be a tough battle against a side with an all-court game now and strengths in different areas.

    "But for us it's a matter of getting back into Premiership rugby after a disappointing loss and trying to put a performance together on the pitch."

  4. Team news

    Worcester Warriors v Exeter Chiefs

    Injury-hit Worcester Warriors have been given a boost ahead of Friday's meeting with Premiership champions Exeter.

    Tom Heathcote (concussion), centre Jackson Willison (rib) and Lions back Ben Te'o (arm) are all fit to start.

    Exeter make just one change to the team that beat London Irish on Saturday, Carl Rimmer coming in for Ben Moon at loosehead prop.

    Rob Baxter's side remain without Thomas Waldrom, Ollie Devoto, Dave Ewers and Sam Hill through injury.

    Warriors make just one change from the side narrowly beaten at home by Wasps last Sunday, when they lost tighthead prop Nick Schonert.

    With Schonert now expected to be out for some months after suffering a bad ankle injury, Biyi Alo, who came on as a second-minute replacement, keeps his place.

    As well as Schonert, Worcester are missing seven other injured players - stand-off Ryan Mills, full-back Chris Pennell, scrum-half Luke Baldwin, centre Wynand Olivier, flanker David Denton, and locks Will Spencer and Darren Barry.
