Tom and Ben Curry have helped spark Sale’s revival and will be a handful for Exeter in their semi-final on Saturday
It sounds like a plot line straight out of a science fiction novel. Imagine if you could clone a world-class player and end up with two athletes equally as fit, strong and potentially influential as each other. Now imagine the future is already here. No wonder Sale’s director of rugby, Alex Sanderson, sounds like a man who cannot quite believe his good fortune.
And why not? Exeter Chiefs tend to reserve their best for Premiership semi-finals at Sandy Park – played five, won five – but this time they will be confronted by a unique double Shark attack. Never before have the identical Curry twins, Tom and Ben, started such a high-profile domestic game in tandem; having already celebrated their 23rd birthdays with a family barbecue this week, a Twickenham final would be the ideal shared present.
