Garvey stars for Exiles

Flanker Matt Garvey scored two tries for London Irish who overturned a 18-10 half-time deficit to Sale Sharks and opened their LV= Cup campaign with a 34-28 win at the Madejski Stadium.

Lock George Skivington and centre Shane Geraghty scored the Exiles' other tries, with fly-half Ian Humphreys kicking 14 points.

Danny Cipriani scored 18 points for Sale with a try, three penalties and two conversions after out-of-favour Wales scrum-half Dwayne Peel's try gave the visitors an early lead.

Sale salvaged a losing bonus point with winger Charlie Amesbury's last-ditch try, converted by Cipriani.
