Sale Rocked By Winger Blow

Sale Rocked By Winger Blow

Sale have been rocked by the news that winger Marland Yarde will miss the rest of the season after picking up a serious knee injury. Yarde has been in impressive form for Sale but his season is now over after he picked up the injury during the 20-7 win over Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.

Sale have confirmed that Yarde ruptured his MCL and ACL ligaments and dislocated his left knee while making a tackle in the clash and the injury is likely to keep him out for a minimum of six months.

That means the target will be to return for pre-season training and comes as a huge blow to both Sale and England.

Yarde had set his sights on breaking into the England squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and although there is still a chance of making it, his hopes have been dented.

There is some good news for both club and country though as Chris Ashton is set to return to action following a ban.
