Sale Sharks avoided a potential banana skid as they made an emphatic return to Premiership action Sunday, cruising to a 52-12 victory over rock-bottom London Welsh. So one-sided was the game that, as a contest, it was largely over by half-time at which points Sale were 35 points and five tries to the good.
Sale move up to 6th with today's win and are now only two points out of the play-off places. Up next they face Saracens on Saturday knowing they could potentially leapfrog the Fez Heads into the top-four with a victory. Saracens at home will be a very different challenge to today's game however.
