Shark attack looking likely

Sale Sharks hold a one-point lead over Connacht in Pool Three of the Challenge Cup due to their bonus-point defeat of Perpignan in France last week.

Andy Friend's side could not quite manage to replicate that result at home to Bordeaux in Galway, coming up one try short of a five-point haul.

The history between the clubs has had a bitter aftertaste for the Westerners as they have been beaten all four times they have met, both home and away in 2000/2001 and 2004/2005.

The Sharks have bitten opponents on 23 of their last 26 starts at home in Europe and the only clubs to humble them there have all been French.

This would be a case of breaking new ground for Connacht.
