Nick Macleod eyeing up a kick

Two tries: Nick MacLeod

Sale recorded back-to-back five pointers in the Amlin Challenge Cup after they cruised by Italian outfit Petrarca 56-9 at Stadio Plebiscito.

Teen sensation Tom Brady led the way, following up last week's hat-trick with a brace of tries, while there were also two apiece for Mark Cueto and Nick MacLeod and one by Rob Miller.

The bonus-point win means Sale stay top having amassed 153 points in two games. Brady opened the scoring with his first try as the scores were all square.

Fit again Matthew Tait showed no ill-effects from his recent lay-off setting up tries for MacLeod and Brady, either side of Cueto's score to wrap up the bonus point before half-time.

Sale rung the changes but still ran in three more tries from Cueto, MacLeod and Miller in the final minute.

Meanwhile, the Sharks' qualification rivals Brive racked up an impressive 116-3 victory over El Salvador in the other Pool's other fixture.
