Sale scoop two Premiership awards

McAlister has been in brilliant form during September

Sale have won the Guinness Premiership director of rugby and player of the month awards for September.

Phillipe Saint Andre and former All Black centre Luke McAlister were awarded the accolades following the Sharks unbeaten start to the season.

Sale are the first team in the competition's 11-year history to go four consecutive games without conceding a try.

McAlister narrowly shaded his team-mate Charlie Hodgson for the award.

Sale could make it five straight Premiership wins on Wednesday when they travel to the Madejski Stadium to take on London Irish.

BBC Radio Manchester has full match commentary of the game from 1945 BST on
