Sharks too sharp for Warriors
Former Amlin Challenge Cup champions Sale Sharks took firm control of Pool One with a comfortable 29-15 victory over Worcester Warriors.
However, the success at Sixways only heaped more misery on Warriors director of rugby Dean Ryan who is still awaiting a first win of the season.
A week after having a win cruelly denied them with a late penalty in Oyonnax, Worcester were undone in a first half that ended 24-3 in favour of the visitors.
With outside half Danny Cipriani pulling the strings, Sharks scored three tries in the opening half. Rob Miller burst through for the first from Cipriani's pass before the scrum claimed a penalty try and Dwayne Peel scampered over on the stroke of half-time.
The Warriors rallied in the second half and tries from Alex Grove and Mike Williams raised the possibility of a grandstand finish, but Mark Easter's bonus-point try ensured Sharks left with all the spoils.
