Try scorer: Mathew Tait

Brive extended their lead in Pool Two of the Amlin Challenge Cup with a last-gasp 15-13 victory over Sale Sharks on Monday.

In a match played at Netherdale in Galashiels, Scotland due to the bad weather, Sale led 13-12 at half-time with Mathew Tait scoring the game's only try.

But Julien Caminati kicked his fifth penalty of the game in the last minute to give Brive a hard-fought win.

The "home" side got off to the perfect start when Brive were caught offside after just three minutes and Nick Macleod slotted the resulting penalty.

Macleod and Caminati traded penalties until the 35th minute when Sale produced a powerful scrum to force Brive backwards, leaving room for Tait to sprint over for the try.

Macleod's conversion made it 13-9 but Caminati ended the half with his fourth penalty to reduce the gap to a single point.

Neither side were able to produce much attacking quality in the second period and the decisive moment came in the last minute.

Sale were penalised at a scrum and Caminati slotted home from 30 metres out to seal the win.

Meanwhile Bayonne crusied to an easy 31-7 win over Prato, securing a bonus point in the process.
