Sharks bounce back for Irish defeat

Sale bounced back from their opening-day Aviva Premiership defeat at Worcester to ignite their campaign with a hard-fought 30-29 win and condemn London Irish to a second consecutive loss.

The Sharks edged an absorbing encounter which saw them claim two first-half tries from Henry Thomas and James Gaskell before scrum-half Dwayne Peel went over for a decisive second-half score.

The Exiles, who touched down in the first half through David Paice and Jonathan Joseph, at least went home with a losing bonus point thanks to the expert kicking of full-back Tom Homer, who kicked seven goals from as many attempts.
