Jeremy Staunton

Six Jeremy Staunton penalties were enough to ensure Leicester extended their unbeaten run in the Premiership to nine games at the expense of Sale.

Chris Bell's second-half try had edged the Sharks in front but the Tigers fly-half kicked his side to victory.

Staunton had given the visitors an early 6-0 lead and despite Charlie Hodgson's efforts with the boot Leicester led 12-9 at the break.

Sale's only consolation was to finish with a losing bonus point.

The Sharks have now lost 10 matches in the Premiership this season.
