Faf de Klerk in mesmerising form as Sale Sharks thrash Bristol Bears in English Premiership

Faf de Klerk was at his phenomenal best this afternoon as his side dismantled title contenders Bristol Bears in a 40-7 win at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The World Cup winning scrum-half was at the heart of Sale’s winning performance with some instrumental contributions in a number of his side’s scores.

Sale raced to an early 14-0 lead in the opening quarter of the encounter and Faf de Klerk added to Bristol’s woes with this well taken try just 18 minutes into this afternoon’s game.

De Klerk’s distribution and kicking game was exceptional throughout as he pulled the strings for the Manchester side’s scores.

He showed his phenomenal handling ability for this second half try and he fires a bullet pass across to initiate this try-scoring sequence.

He wasn’t finished there.

We see as he takes a pass out wide off of the driving maul before throwing a deft inside pass to his winger, Marland Yarde. This was Faf at his mesmerising best.

Fans took to social media to praise Faf de Klerk for his man of the match performance which was arguably his best showing in a Sale Sharks jersey…


This huge win was a massive statement for Sale Sharks who endured a tough start to their Premiership campaign following the rugby restart.

They are considered to be one of a few title contenders to challenge Exeter Chiefs who have been dominant in England’s top flight all season.
