Sale Sharks defeated Llanelli Scarlets yesterday at the Parc y Scarlets 57 points to 14 in a very impressive win over the Scarlets. One of the big talking points of the game though was how Welsh second row Jake Bell didn’t get a straight red card for a shocking hit to the head on South African scrum-half Faf de Klerk. See it below
How was this shot to the head of Faf de Klerk by Jake Ball not checked properly by the TMO and referee?! They said it was legal because the hand was on and the ball was out, how about the shoulder to head?! French officials hey….pic.twitter.com/GGx5Gu1bg2

Sale Sharks will play Ronan O’Gara’s La Rochelle next Saturday in France, in what should be a cracking game both sides are stacked with talent especially Sale with the two Curry brothers and one of the best scrum-halves in the world in Faf de Klerk. Who do you fancy to go all the way this year and win the Champions Cup, some good sides still left in the competition.
