Change to Sale Sharks team for Saturday

Figure image
Dwayne Peel, Dean Schofield and Anitelea Tuilagi return from injury to join the Sale Sharks squad for Saturday's Guinness Premiership match against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road (5pm kick-off).

Luke McAlister is having a fitness test early on Friday afternoon. If the New Zealander has not recovered sufficiently from a hamstring injury, Mathew Tait will revert to outside centre and Oriol Ripol will come in on the left wing. Selorm Kuadey was named among the replacements.

Tuilagi, younger brother of Leicester Tigers wing Alesana, has been out of action since injuring a shoulder at Munster in January.
