English Premiership – Bath beat Sale at home


Bath had an impressive win over Sale Sharks on Friday night beating them 27-22.

It was first half tries from Tom de Glanville, Tom Dunn and Josh Bayliss that gave Bath their first win in four matches. This was also Sale first defeat in five matches.

With a lead of 24-10 Bath had enough to make sure they break that loosing streak.

Dan Du Preez gave Sale hope early in the second half but it was not enough and the late try by Neild was not enough.

Bath got on the board within two minutes when De Glanville out sprinted the defence for the first points of the match. Ross got Sale back in the game with his try but 10 minutes later Bath took control of the match.

First Dunn went over and then Bayliss got his to give the visitors a handy lead going into the break.

The night may have been different for Sale if a Dan Du Preez try was not disallowed. The referee spotted a forward pass from Faf de Klerk.

One must say it was a well deserved win for Bath who took their opportunities on the night.
