Sale slip past London Irish for winSale bounced back from their opening-day Aviva Premiership defeat at Worcester to ignite their campaign with a hard-fought win and condemn London Irish to a second consecutive loss.The Sharks edged an absorbing encounter which saw them claim two first-half tries from Henry Thomas and James Gaskell before scrum-half Dwayne Peel went over for a decisive second-half score.The Exiles, who touched down in the first half through David Paice and Jonathan Joseph, at least went home with a losing bonus point thanks to the expert kicking of full-back Tom Homer, who kicked seven goals from as many attempts.Sale began purposefully and led inside the the fourth minute when Peel's quick pass found Rob Miller advancing forward at pace from full-back inside the left channel.The former Newcastle player showed neat footwork and impressive pace to outstrip a clutch of Irish defenders before finding Thomas in support with a clever inside pass.Thomas burst clear to cross the line and fly-half Nick MacLeod added the extras with a conversion that went over via an upright.Irish came back strongly and a penalty from Homer got them off the mark in the 13th minute.They began to enjoy a period of sustained pressure which culminated in Paice burrowing his way over the line from a line-out in the 21st minute.tagsGloucester Warriors Aviva Premiership Highlights rugby football union league Gloucester Bath London Irish Northampton Harlequins Wasps Exeter Sale Newcastle Leeds Carnegie hits tries goals tackles
