Sale Sharks score seven tries in a crushing 53-14 win over Oyonnax Rugby in the Challenge Cup.

Sale Sharks have thrashed Oyonnax Rugby 53-14 to make it three wins from four matches in the pool stage of this season's Challenge Cup.

The visitors defended well for the opening 20 minutes, restricting the Aviva Premiership side to two penalties early on, but James Gaskell opened the floodgates when he scored the first try of the match.

Danny Cipriani, Dan Braid and Mark Cueto all managed to find the try line before half time as Sale dominated the final 15 minutes before the break.

Cipriani extended the Sharks' lead at the start of the second half with his second try of the evening, but with the win secured, the hosts brought on their replacements.

Nicolas Vuillemin and Roimata Hansell-Pune added a couple of consolation scores for the French club, before a late flourish from Sale saw them finish the game with seven tries.
