Watch the Match Highlights from the Gallagher Premiership game at AJ Bell Stadium between Sale Sharks and Leicester Tigers in Round 18 of the 2020/21 season.

Leicester Tigers were beaten 26-10 by Sale Sharks in Round 18 of the Gallagher Premiership season on Friday evening.

Victory for the home side was built on their first half when a try from Byron McGuigan and 11 points from fly-half AJ MacGinty provided a 16-point lead before Zack Henry put Tigers on the scoreboard with a penalty shortly before half-time.

Tigers, though, enjoyed more ball and territory in the second 40 minutes, claiming a penalty try and seeing two Sharks defenders sin-binned before a Marland Yarde try pushed Sale out of reach.

Victory at the AJ Bell Stadium allowed Sharks to leapfrog defending champions Exeter Chiefs into second place in the table overnight and stretch their winning run in the tournament to five games.
