Sale extend winning run

Sale ran in three second-half tries from Mark Easter, Dwayne Peel and David Seymour as they overcame Northampton 29-21 to claim their third straight Aviva Premiership victory.

Nick MacLeod booted four penalties and one conversion but Sale took advantage when the visitors had forwards Calum Clark and Phil Dowson sin-binned midway through the second half.

All Northampton's points came from the boot of fly-half Stephen Myler, but it was not enough to prevent a third straight defeat.
