Sale quarter-final hopes ended

Sale Sharks' hopes of an Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final were ended by Thursday's 19-9 home defeat to French side Brive.

The 2002 and 2005 tournament winners needed to win and deny Brive a bonus point to progress.

However, they were outmuscled in the later stages by the visitors, who march on into the knockout stages for the second season running.
