Stuart Hooper commented: “We have given everything we’ve got to this competition and we feel incredibly proud to have earned the right to be in the play-offs. We are determined to head to Sandy Park this weekend and play for our place in the final.
“It cannot go unsaid that we also understand how difficult this week has been for players and staff at Sale, Worcester, Gloucester and Northampton. We know what you have all given this season and the sacrifices you have all made. We are part of the same community and no one wants to hear that any Club is experiencing these extraordinary challenges, especially at this time in the season. Importantly, we would like to wish all players and staff at Sale a full and quick recovery for those currently experiencing covid-19 symptoms.”
