Sale director of sport Steve Diamond has warned the side's returning World Cup players they face a fight to get back into the starting line-up.

Tasesa Lavea and Andy Powell are the last two players to return to the side which lies third in the Premiership.

"The inclusion of these [World Cup] players takes a bit of time," Diamond told BBC Radio Manchester.

"Let's hope all the jet lags finally out of them, as they've got a bit of loving to do to get into this team."
