SALES BEAT HARLEQUINS

Sale Rugby Union team won 21-17 over Harlequins thanks to an impressive second-half performance from Kyle Tonetti. George Lowe put Quins ahead inside five minutes before Nick Evans converted.

Nick Macleod's two penalties put Sale within a point but a penalty and converted Jordan Turner-Hall try gave Quins an 11-point half-time lead. Tomas Vallejos Cinalli's sin-binning with 10 minutes left led to Mark Cueto's try, followed by Tonetti's score and five points from Macleod.

SALE SECURE WIN

Sale secured a win over Newcastle by defeating them 35-18. After an early penalty exchange Falcons flanker Brent Wilson scored from a forwards move off a five-metre scrum.

Karena Whihongi hit back for Sale before Macleod's kick was gathered by Tom Brady to cross in the corner.

After the break Macleod added more points with the boot before Chris Leck's sin-binning let Wilson in again.

Sale started much the brighter and had points on the board through Macleod's boot after just 90 seconds as referee Dean Richards proved a harsh judge of any handling on the ground.

SALE LOOK FOR MAJOR GAME

Sale owner Brian Kennedy has revealed the club are looking to emulate Harlequins and Saracens' success by moving a showpiece home fixture to a ‘major’ ground in the North West, following the international game's lead - England Rugby Hospitality made thousands from a recent showpiece match.

And the multi-millionaire Cheshire businessman has also confirmed that, for now, Sale will be sticking with Friday nights when they stage their home fixtures at Edegely Park next season.

SALE PLAYERS INVESTIGATED

Sale Sharks' end-of-season players' party ended in uproar at a pub popular with families.

Officials from the Guinness Premiership club are co-operating with police investigating what happened at the get-together in the King's Ransom pub in Sale town centre at the weekend.

Bouncers are believed to have been involved in trying to quell the trouble that began after, it is claimed, members of the 20-strong party of players used language that offended family groups.
