‘We need to right the wrongs’ – Leota

Date published: September 20 2016

Sale Sharks centre Johnny Leota is expecting a tough match against Worcester Warriors when they travel to Sixways for Saturday's fixture.

The Sharks are looking to bounce back after last week's Premiership defeat at home to Gloucester and Leota is confident they can do just that.

"These guys are going to come at us hard, but we are preparing for that this week," explained Leota when speaking to Sale's official website.

"We need to right the wrongs we made last week and everything we're doing is preparing us for Worcester. No matter who we played this week, we definitely need to up the bar."

Sale lost their only other away game at Newcastle in the opening round of the season and after the Quins defeat, Leota added: "Everyone knows what we did wrong and we've worked on it this week. We're ready to go.

"We're building phases and getting in to their 22 and leaving with nothing, and that's not where we want to be.

"It's just a couple of communications errors we're making. We're breaking through teams so it's just a case of finishing them off and racking up the points when we're down there."
