The title says it all really.
Five tries from Sale in total yesterday, three of which came from the rolling maul tactic and two of those being awarded as penalty tries as London Irish were unable to find any way to halt Sale's rampaging pack without infringing as the Sharks cruised to a decisive victory, 36-8.
Part one of a critical month of games for Sale in the Premiership went as ideally as possible as, despite being literally neck-and-neck with Irish going into yesterday's game with a solitary losing bonus point in Irish's favour separating the two teams, Sale had no problem with their adversaries whom they strolled over and through leaving the AJ Bell with a crucial five points ahead of the next fortnight's trips to Harlequins and Newcastle.
Game two of November's three premiership games for Sale up next as the Sharks head to the Twickenham Stoop to face Harlequins. The squad will be buoyed by this weekend's performance and a continuation of such form as well as Harlequins' notable omissions due to international duty (including an England quartet) should make it a very close game.
