Fresh from the indignation of a 45-9 loss to Saracens in the Heineken Cup, Sale Sharks head coach Tony Hanks was called into the office of Managing Director Bob Diamond and given his marching orders.  Given the performance of the Sharks in that match on Friday night, they won’t miss him too much.

Hanks was initially brought in half-way through last season, in June 2011, with the brief of coming up with a gameplan that fused the qualities of the players in both attack and defence.  From the lacklustre defending and fairly abject attacking on Friday it would be difficult to tell that there was indeed a plan in place!
