A delightfully scintillating game of end-to-end attacking rugby saw Sale record a bonus-point victory over Northern rivals Newcastle Falcons in club legend Mark Cueto's, amongst others, last home game for the club. Five tries from Chris Cusiter, Mark Cueto, Sam Tuitupou, David Seymour and T.J. Ioane alongside Leicester Tigers' narrow victory over Wasps earlier today ensured Sale's final game of the season next weekend against Exeter Chiefs will not be a dead rubber as the Sharks still hold a slim chance of making the top-six and qualifying for the Champions Cup.
Sale finish their 2014/15 season with a trip to Exeter Chiefs where they ran in 52 points last season. Whilst a repeat result is as unlikely as Wasps failing to get at least a bonus point away to Irish, there is still a tiny, minute chance Sale could still make it into next year's Champions Cup. Stranger things have happened.
