Dwayne Peel Sale Sharks 2013

In-form nine: Dwayne Peel

Sale Sharks boss Steve Diamond was happy with his side's performance against Worcester as they made it two wins from two in the Challenge Cup.

Their 29-15 win at Sixways Stadium was their second in the Pool campaign and that pleased Diamond ahead of a return to domestic action.

"We carried on the momentum from the win over Biarritz at AJ Bell Stadium and though Worcester obviously had a lot of harsh words at half time we were never under serious threat," he said.

"Overall we're happy though we know we've got a couple of hard games ahead of us over the next fortnight with Harlequins at the Stoop and Exeter at the AJ Bell Stadium on the 1st November."

Victory over the Warriors was their third straight success in all competitions and Diamond paid tribute to his forwards for laying the platform.

"We've said let's try and be consistent and the pack are delivering on that and Danny Cipriani is playing well behind them as is Dwayne Peel," he added.

"We'll get beat by the big sides but we have got some consolidation in the place now. The players know the game plan and they stick to it and we just give them pointers."
