Peel bags brace in Sharks success

Dwayne Peel touched down twice as Sale Sharks all but secured their Aviva Premiership survival with a dominant 32-9 bonus-point victory over Gloucester.

Johnny Leota, Peel and Cameron Shepherd all went over for Sale in the first half as they took a 22-6 lead into half-time. Freddie Burns responded for the Cherry and Whites with two penalties before the break and added another in the second period.

But it was not to be as the hosts' scrum-half and Mark Cueto crossed the whitewash late on to move the Sharks above London Irish into 10th and dent Gloucester's play-off hopes in the process.
