Sale keep up perfect cup record

Sale Sharks withstood a second-half rally from Leeds Carnegie to maintain their 100% start to the LV= Anglo Welsh Cup with a 23-17 victory.

Sean Cox and Rhys Crane scored first-half tries and Matty James kicked 13 points as Sale built on their superb victory over London Irish last week.

Leeds, who twice got to within a converted try of victory thanks to second-half scores from Scott Barrow and Scott Mathie, have still to win in domestic competition this season, a sequence that now stands at nine games.
