Chief executive takes charge of Sale team

Sale Sharks chief executive Steve Diamond explains his decision to take charge of first-team affairs for the rest of the season after Bryan Redpath was removed from his position as director of rugby.

Diamond insists Redpath is "keen to stay" despite the "sideways move" but has been given a couple of days off to consider his future.

Sale Sharks are bottom of the Premiership having lost all of their first seven matches.

Diamond's first match in charge is against second-from-bottom London Irish at Salford City Stadium on Friday.
