Sharks start their European campaign with record points haul

Sale Sharks secured their biggest ever points haul in European competition with an emphatic win over Cetransa El Salvador in the Amlin Challenge Cup on Friday night.

Tom Brady scored a hat-trick of tries while Fergus Mulchrone grabbed two as Sharks hit the Spanish champions for 15 tries at Edgeley Park.

Fly-half Nick Macleod also crossed twice and kicked eight conversions to equal Charlie Hodgson's club record of 26 points in a match.

El Salvador have not won a European tie for six years yet took a shock lead through centre Jaike Carter in the fourth minute.

However three tries in the space of six minutes Sisaro Koyamaibole, Macleod and Andy Tuilagi set Sale on course for an easy win.

Brady wrapped up a bonus point after just 21 minutes before Chris Bell and Mulchrone opened a 36-11 half-time lead.

Macleod took just two minutes of the second half to add to the scoring with his second try and then converted Chris Brightwell's score to take Sale to the half-century mark.

Ben Cohen, Chris Jones, Brady (twice), replacement Rob Miller and Mulchrone all scored in a 14-minute blitz. Chris Leck completed the rout as Sale missed out on the century by just a penalty.
