Mr Tempest giving us no favours at all.

Feels like years since we've seen a crash ball try like that from Manu at WR. Shame about the colour of his shirt.

I thought the referee was meant to officiate both sides rather than one?

Anybody else think Leibenberg looks a lot better as an 8 rather than a 6 or is it just me?

Got to be a yellow card coming soon.. need to sort this penalty count out.. think that’s more given away already than in each of the last 3 games

I think its being refereed in accordance with the respective league positions.

That back row and centres combo is just pure lethal.

We can blame the ref but the issue is that Sale are a very good side and we're a Championship level side.

I’m pleased it’s not just me that has taken exception to the officiating today.

It seems Boris has noticed!!

Tiger's line out if now falling apart. This is going to be a really long afternoon, with little field position or possession. Arguably the best performance of the SB era so far, was the "opener" away at Exeter?

Good work from Stanko's boys wins a scrum penalty...that's more like it!

I’d like to know what the possession stats are. Even when we do have the ball, which is rare, we kick it away.

Handling poor. Looks like blind panic on times.

Ragged. That phase of play was horrible.
