Full-back Fergus Mulchrone was in support to continue the move, scoring on 14 minutes close to the posts before Chris Johnson converted the try.

With the visitors leading 14-7, Sale were awarded a penalty which Johnson duly kicked to narrow the lead.

As half time approached, Park were awarded a penalty which Gregory Lound kicked to re-establish the visitors' seven-point advantage at the interval.
