Danny Cipriani opened the scoring for Sale from a penalty with just two minutes played, before Mark Cueto added to the scoreline with a try.

Ciprani kicked over two more penalties to further extended the lead, but it wasn't until the 52nd minute when the visitors added a second try to the scoring, that coming courtesy of Daniel Braid.

The conversion added to the hosts' troubles, although Mariano Galazra's try after 66 minutes gave home supporters something to cheer about.

Galazra added his second try of the afternoon with four minutes left to play, and Ryan Lamb kicked over to close the score to 12-24, but Sale comfortably held out to take the points.
