Bath snatch late LV Cup victory over Sale Sharks

Bath snatched a late 20-27 Anglo Welsh LV Cup victory over Sale Sharks when Dave Attwood scored a dramatic last-minute try.

The teams went into the break level at 10-10 with Michael Paterson touching down for Sale and Anthony Perenise responding for the visitors.
