KIERAN WILKIN­SON Sale fly-half v MAX MALINS Sara­cens fly-half

The Rugby Paper - - Premiership Rugby Cup -

Sale may have brought in Robert du Preez to as­sume first choice fly-half du­ties while AJ MacGinty is out, but Wilkin­son has im­pressed in his few ap­pear­ances in a Sale shirt and was very good on Fri­day night.

Kick­ing out of hand needs work, but he cre­ated op­por­tu­ni­ties via his foot­work, bal­ance and tim­ing of the pass. He out­played Malins who, to be per­fectly hon­est, had a shocker.
