It was 2006 when a star-studded Sharks so gloriously toppled Leicester in the Premiership final at Twickenham and not much has gone right since. Ultimately, though, they proved too strong for Harlequins in this rearranged Premiership Rugby Cup final and victory was achieved with a distinctly South African flavour.
Sale trailed 19-10 in the final quarter but Dan du Preez crossed for a converted try and a penalty then edged them in front before De Klerk added gloss to the victory. Sale’s director of rugby, Steve Diamond, also introduced England centre Manu Tuilagi in the second half and said: “Manu and Faf coming on made a difference. Faf speeded the ball up at the ruck; he took the game away from Harlequins, but that’s what world-class players do.”
Harlequins captain, Chris Robshaw, will leave the club the end of the current campaign and had hoped to bow out with a winners’ medal in his pocket. But it was not to be and Quins head of rugby, Paul Gustard, said: “We’re disappointed, of course, that we have not won for Chris, and Chris has not won for himself. Two or three decisions went against us, but it’s a young, developing squad and we have to learn from these experiences.”
Harlequins lost lock Stephan Lewies to the sin bin early on before Sale led when their lively hooker, Curtis Langdon, emerged from a thicket of players to cross the line. Robert du Preez added the conversion and a penalty to make it 10-0, before Quins hit back with two penalties from Marcus Smith.
In the 24th minute, Sale lost flanker Ben Curry to an ankle injury and he was replaced by his twin brother Tom. Quins forward James Chisholm showed intelligence to dive over the line from close range and Smith converted before adding a penalty to give his side a 16-10 advantage at half-time.
After Smith kicked his fourth penalty, De Klerk and Tuilagi were introduced and Dan du Preez barrelled over in the 66th minute for a try his brother converted, cutting the deficit to two points. With seven minutes remaining, Will Evans conceded a penalty that Rob du Preez kicked to put Sale back in front before De Klerk scampered over inside the left channel in the closing stages, sparking wild celebrations.The Argentina international will join Tigers ahead of the 2020/21 Gallagher Premiership season from Super Rugby side the Jaguares.
Bonilla has made four international appearances for Los Pumas since his debut in 2018 and has previously represented Argentina at Under-20 level.
The 31-year-old made more than 130 appearances for Argentinian club Hindu before joining the Jaguares in 2017, ahead of their second Super Rugby season, and played a starring role in the run to the 2019 Super Rugby Final alongside future Tigers team-mates Tomas Lavanini and Matias Moroni. An exciting, athletic fly-half, with a successful goal kicking record, Bonilla will add “valuable depth” to the Leicester squad according to Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy.
“Joaquín is a very exciting addition for us and we are looking forward to welcoming him to Leicester ahead of next season’s campaign,” said Murphy.
“He will add valuable depth to our squad and alongside George [Ford], Zack [Henry] and Johnny McPhillips, provide plenty of healthy competition in a key position, which is a positive thing for us as we continue on this journey.”
Murphy also believes his contribution off the pitch will be a boost to the club, adding: “In our conversations with Joaquín, what has stood out is his positive character and energetic personality.
“We have been very open about wanting good people as much as good players, who are willing to work hard and live up to the standards we have set, and Joaquín is very excited to be a part of what we are building in Leicester.”
Bonilla joins fellow Argentina international Matías Moroni and South African back-rower Jasper Wiese as additions to the Leicester Tigers squad ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.This weekend will see reigning European champions Saracens take on Racing 92 in Paris while Exeter Chiefs welcome Toulouse to Sandy Park.
