Leicester run riot

Leicester ran in 31 unanswered second-half points to overcome Sale 34-13 and claim only their second Aviva Premiership victory of the campaign in a thrilling encounter.

The Tigers have found life tough in the opening weeks of the season owing to a number of World Cup call-ups, but they dug deep when it mattered most.

Rookie wing Tom Brady's first-half try helped the Sharks into a 13-3 interval lead but second-half scores from Alesana Tuilagi, Martin Castrogiovanni, Toby Flood and Marcos Ayerza completed a stunning turnaround. England fly-half Flood ended with a 19-point haul.
