Highlights | Tigers go down to Sharks in Sale

Watch the Match Highlights from the Gallagher Premiership away game for Leicester Tigers against Sale Sharks in Round 14 of the 21/22 season at AJ Bell Stadium.

Tigers suffered only a second defeat of the season as Sale ran in four second-half tries in a 35-26 win on Sunday.

Tigers had a 13-point lead at half-time following a textbook mauled try from Julian Montoya and a solo score from Guy Porter on the left wing, but Sharks responded after the break to protect a home record showing just one defeat in any competition at the AJ Bell Stadium since last February.

Luke James got Sale’s only points of the opening period but three tries in a 15-minute spell after the break took them in front around the hour and they sealed the points with another in the closing stages.

Both teams are without England players, with Burns and Richard Wigglesworth coming into the Tigers tem at half-backs, while Hanro Liebenberg returned to the squad after injury and on-loan Olly Robinson joined him among the replacements.
