Sale Sharks have made wholesale changes to their line-up for Friday’s Aviva Premiership clash with Harlequins.

Only three players – Tom Arscott, Tom Brady and James Gaskell - retain their places in the starting XV following the Amlin Challenge Cup defeat to Northampton.

That means Dan Braid returns to skipper the Sharks, while Premiership Player of the Month for March Danny Cipriani is handed the No 10 jersey.

Conversely, Harlequins have opted against making any changes following their win over Stade Francais in Paris.

Maurie Fa'asavalu is included on the bench, though, while Ross Chisholm is poised to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from an injury.

Sale Sharks: 15 Arscott, 14 Brady, 13 Leota, 12 Tuitupou, 11 Cueto, 10 Cipriani, 9 Peel, 1 Lewis-Roberts, 2 Jones, 3 Cobilas, 4 Mills, 5 Paterson, 6 Braid (c), 7 Seymour, 8 Gaskell.
Replacements: 16 Taylor, 17 Harrison, 18 Thomas, 19 Ostrikov, 20 Easter, 21 Cliff, 22 Macleod, 23 Miller

Harlequins: 15 Brown, 14 Lindsay-Hague, 13 Molenaar, 12 Turner-Hall, 11 Smith, 10 Evans, 9 Care, 1 Marler, 2 Ward, 3 Sinckler, 4 Kennedy, 5 Robson, 6 Wallace, 7 Robshaw (c), 8 Easter
Replacements: 16 Buchanan, 17 Lambert, 18 Doran Jones, 19 Guest, 20 Fa'asavalu, 21 Dickson, 22 Botica, 23 Chisholm
