Faf de Klerk and Chris Ashton link up with deft touch that catches Perpignan off guard

Faf de Klerk and Chris Ashton link up with deft touch that catches Perpignan off guard

Sale Sharks picked up a bonus point win against Perpignan to earn a home quarter-final in the European Challenge Cup. Faf de Klerk played a large role in the win as the home side scored five tries at the AJ Bell. They will face Connacht, who finished second in the pool, in the quarter-final.

Both Sale Sharks and Connacht finished the pool on 22 points but Sale had a superior head-to-head record, so top the table, with Bordeaux-Begles and Perpignan behind on 12 and 3 points respectively.

The 39-10 win included a neatly taken try by fullback Ashton, who pounced on a deft kick ahead by Springbok De Klerk, who yet again had a hand in a number of the five tries on the day.

The Challenge Cup Quarter-finals will be played on March 29-31, with the lineup looking like this:

Clermont v Northampton
La Rochelle v Bristol
Worcester v Harlequins
Sale Sharks v Connacht

The understanding by De Klerk and his outside backs is clearly there which will hold Sale in good stead in the season, and years, to come.
