For the second time this season, Sale Sharks produced an outstanding team display to secure a narrow victory over a top-four team at the AJ Bell, emerging victorious over Saracens for the first time in four years; 14-10 on Saturday afternoon. First-half tries from Sam Tuitupou and Jonathan Mills and a herculean second-half defensive effort was enough to hold off the north London side despite Sarries scoring a very dubious 79th minute pushover try to secure a losing bonus point.
A second consecutive win, both over last year's Premiership finalists, have boosted Sale up to 5th in the table at least until Leicester play Irish on Sunday. Next up is a daunting trip to Welford Road on Saturday as Sale look to continue their recent surge in the Premiership.
