BRISTOL ENDED A run of four successive Premiership defeats as they continued Sale’s away-day blues with a 32-15 win at Ashton Gate on Friday.

The Sharks have not claimed a league win on the road this season and Bristol extended that sequence following three first-half tries.

Full-back Luke Morahan claimed a double, while hooker Will Capon also crossed, with Bristol posting two of their scores while England international flanker Tom Curry was in the sin bin for Sale.

Fly-half Callum Sheedy kicked two penalties and three conversions, before substitute scrum-half Andy Uren added a bonus-point try during the closing seconds following a sensational piece of play by Ioan Lloyd.

Sale could not build on a solid first 40 minutes when hooker Ewan Ashman and centre Robert Du Preez scored tries, failing to register a point in the second period.

Victory lifts Bristol up to 11th just three points behind Sale, who remain 10th.
