Sale fly-half Danny Cipriani has hailed his side’s attacking performances so far this season, as they sit second in the Premiership’s try-scoring chart.

The free-scoring Sharks have amassed eighteen tries in five games in 2014/15 and the England international playmaker is loving their threat.

“We’re scoring a lot more tries this year going forward and that’s really helping us in our attack,” Cipriani explained, speaking to BBC Sport.

“We’re really working on getting back into the swing of things, back to what Sale are good at.”

Despite only winning two of their five matches in the Premiership, Sale enter this weekend’s clash with Northampton at Franklin’s Gardens confident after they defeated Wasps 25-14 last time out.

“It was Sale of old in defence, but hopefully it was more Sale of the new in the way we’re attacking and willing to take the space when it’s on,” Cipriani said of their performance.

“That’s credit to the boys for stepping up and making the calls and what we’ve practised in pre-season is coming to fruition on the field.

“I’m really happy with the way I’m going and how the team is going forward.”
