SALE Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond has named his side to take on Harlequins, on Friday evening at the AJ Bell Stadium, kick off 7.45pm.

The game is between the fifth and sixth placed teams in the Aviva Premiership.

It pitches together two very talented fly halves in Danny Cipriani and Nick Evans.

Both are creative players and a great game is anticipated in front of what will be one of the biggest crowds of the season at the stadium.

Both teams are strong defensively with Sharks having conceded only 25 tries (the second best record in the competition) and Quins who have conceded 26 tries (third best).

The teams have met twice already this season with honours shared. Quins won the Premiership game 24-3 in October, but Sharks won the LV=Cup game at the Stoop in November 31-26.

In the LV=Cup game, Danny Cipriani came off the bench to score a crucial try late in the game.

The Sale starting line-up is:Tom Arscott, Tom Brady, Jonny Leota, Sammy Tuitupou, Mark Cueto, Danny Cipriani, Dwayne Peel, Eifion Lewis-Roberts, Marc Jones, Vadim Cobilas, Jonathan Mills,Michael Paterson, Dan Braid Captain,David Seymour, James Gaskell.

Replacements Tommy Taylor, Ross Harrison, Henry Thomas, Andrei Ostrikov, Mark Easter, Will Cliff, Nick Macleod, Rob Miller
