Title-chasing Sale will be looking for something of a comfortable ride at home on Friday night against the London Irish. The Sharks will have the chance to draw level on points at the top with Exeter if they get a bonus-point win. London Irish return to action having had a three-match winning streak snapped.

Sale have enough to power past London Irish

Sale Sharks have suffered just one loss in their last five league fixtures, which was away at Saracens in mid-February. On home turf at the AJ Bell Stadium, they are motoring along on a four-match winning streak in the league.

They are also on a five-match winning streak against the Irish too and they will be defending a five-match unbeaten home record against the Exiles in the top flight.

League leaders Exeter and mid-table Wasps are the only two teams to have scored more points in the Premiership this season than Sale. A bonus point win will draw them level with leaders Exeter.

Our betting prediction:
Sale HT Winning Margin 1-7

Last weekend Sale went on the road to Kingsholm and picked up a terrific 23-17 win. They had raced out to a great 10-0 half time lead. Sale have been leading by at least ten points at half time in four of their last five league games (home and away).


Exiles have to start again

London Irish burst into life at the end of January, putting together a three-match winning streak. That started with away wins at Northampton and Harlequins and then they added a home success over Gloucester on top.

But their winning streak collapsed last weekend with a home loss against Wasps. London Irish have scored at least twenty points in each of their last five league games, so from a rugby betting perspective, this could end up being a high-scoring fixture.

So the Exiles are winless on their five previous visits to the AJ Bell Stadium. Can they break their duck? They are heavy underdogs here and despite their recent successes away from home in the top flight haven’t won three away games in a row since 2008.

The Sharks on their day are formidable at home and as they are running in confident form they should be backed to come up with the victory in this contest.
