Strong wind blows London Irish restart kick backwards

Sale Sharks beat London Irish 15-3 in the Aviva Premiership on Friday night, and this moment pretty much summed up the evening for the Exiles. Danny Cipriani starred for Sale as he set up a try and kicked a conversion and penalty in poor conditions.

The weather played it's part with this London Irish restart, as the ball was kicked off but went straight up and backwards by a few meters. A few months back we saw a similar thing in New Zealand as wind blew a kick back way over the dead ball line.

This wasn't quite that bad, but was an amusing example of how not to play the conditions.

It was Sale's fifth league win of the season, and London Irish's eighth defeat. Things got worse for the Exiles today as news spread that James O'Connor will be moving to Toulon next season. If reports are indeed correct, he will link up with other former Wallabies Drew Mitchell and Matt Giteau.
