Sale have home advantage as the higher-ranked side following the pool stages of the competition. The Sharks make nine changes from their last league outing as they bid for their first silverware since 2006. Harlequins, who last won this trophy in 2013, make five changes from their victory over Gloucester on Monday. Hooker Scott Baldwin, prop Simon Kerrod, lock Dino Lamb and winger Nathan Earle all return to the Quins starting XV, with former England captain Chris Robshaw also back to skipper the side.

Sale forwards Jean-Luc du Preez, Jono Ross and Ben Curry are the only three survivors from the Sharks pack which started the 37-22 defeat by Bath last Sunday. Lock Cobus Wiese makes his first start for the club and fellow South Africans Coenie Oosthuizen and Daniel du Preez return. Wingers Denny Solomona and Marland Yarde also keep their places in the Sale XV, along with centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg. The Sharks have six internationals on the bench, including South African World Cup-winning scrum-half Faf de Klerk and England pair Tom Curry and Manu Tuilagi.

Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond: “This year, especially for us, the Premiership Rugby Cup has real meaning. “Winning would be a huge reward for the players, the owners and everyone involved at the club along with their families. “We targeted this competition as a stepping stone to success, and it is a massive opportunity for us to show the progression we have made.” Premiership Rugby have squeezed the game into the crowded calendar on the day after the European quarter-final weekend.

Exeter Chiefs, Northampton Saints and Saracens are still involved in the Champions Cup with Leicester Tigers and Bristol Bears poised for Challenge Cup quarter-finals. However, both Sale and Harlequins were knocked out of Europe’s top-tier competition in the pool stages. That means they will be free to contest a game that was initially set for March 15 before being postponed at short notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Premiership Rugby Cup final will take place 366 days after the competition kicked off with a 24-12 win for Harlequins over Bristol Bears on September 21, 2019.

Paul Gustard’s side subsequently beat London Irish and Gloucester before qualifying for the semi-finals despite a 28-21 loss to Saracens. Harlequins overcame Exeter Chiefs 49-22 in the semi-final at Sandy Park, with Alex Dombrandt and Gabriel Ibitoye – no longer at the club – scoring two tries each. Steve Diamond’s side topped pool one, registering four consecutive wins over Northampton Saints, Saracens, Wasps and London Irish. Saracens were their opponents in the last four, and tries from Denny Solomona, Will Cliff, Ben Curry and Akker van der Merwe laid on a 28-7 victory.

Sale have not won a trophy since their Premiership title triumph in 2006. Harlequins’ wait for silverware has not been quite as long. They beat Sharks in the 2013 Anglo-Welsh Cup final. A streetwise performance from Harlequins ensured they beat Sale 16-10 last Friday in the first game of the Premiership’s resumption. However, they will be wary that their last visit to Salford, on January 3, ended in a 48-10 defeat.
