Watch: Faf de Klerk's juggling finish after Sale's 'dream team' of internationals combine

Sale Sharks and Springboks halfback Faf de Klerk finished an excellent movement sparked by a host of top internationals as Sale opened up Gloucester.

Springbok flyhalf Rob Du Preez, England winger Chris Ashton, former Wallaby James O’Connor and Faf de Klerk combined for a scintillating passage of play which saw offloads from Ashton and O’Connor keep the ball alive before de Klerk’s juggling act saved the final pass.

The visitors, with a stacked roster, shocked the home side with a 30-15 win at Kingsholm. Gloucester took an early 10-0 lead but Sale scored 17 unanswered points to take the lead back.

Chris Ashton, Faf de Klerk, Rob Webber and Denny Solomona all touched down for the in-form Sharks, who claimed a bonus-point win on their travels to move up to sixth place.

De Klerk’s all-around performance was lauded as influential to Sale’s win, who made a big defensive tackle as Gloucester were trying to set-up and exit platform from their own 5-metre line. The massive hit on centre Twelvetrees dislodged the ball which Sale scooped up to score a bonus-point try moments later through Denny Solomona.
