BRYN Evans has urged Sale Sharks to keep building momentum as the side focus their attention on their European Rugby Champions Cup fixtures against Toulon and Scarlets in the next fortnight.

Evans returned to the starting XV in the defeat by Harlequins on Saturday where Sharks claimed a losing bonus point which left them 10th in the Aviva Premiership table.

They now turn their attention to their European fixtures, starting on Sunday against RC Toulon at the Stade Mayol.

Ahead of the final round of fixtures, Evans told the club's website: "We need to put together some good performances, string the phases together, and score some good tries and play an exciting style of rugby.

"We're obviously disappointed we lost [last weekend].

"We always want to go and get the win, but we didn't.

"The next best thing is a bonus point, and we got that so we're pleased with that.

"We are progressing well, but when the side left the changing room we left with the objective to win.

"We need to build on that confidence and belief each week, playing right until the end.

"We did and will continue to do so."

The Sharks put in a much improved performance against a Quins side who remain unbeaten at home.

Two tries from Denny Solomona and one from Byron McGuigan helped the cause but a crazy five minutes just before half time saw Sharks concede two tries, which proved to be costly.

Director of rugby Steve Diamond said: "We were unlucky with that bounce before half time, a draw would have been a fair result.

"We've not been playing particularly well, but in the last few weeks we have, and we've not got the win.

"I'm pleased with the bonus point, we just need to get security in the competition, and get the signings for next season sorted and we'll be alright.

"I've come down here and had 50 points put past me before, so I was happy to gain a losing bonus point.

"If we carry on how we played over the last few weeks, then we won't get beat at home again this season."
