In the Aviva Premiership's one match last night, Sale beat Bath 16-9 at Edgeley Park. The Sale full-back Rob Miller scored the only try of the match with nine minutes to play; Nick Macleod converted and also kicked three penalties. Olly Barkley kicked three penalties for Bath.

The result lifted Sale into sixth place in the table, ahead of Gloucester, and did further damage to Bath's hopes of qualifying for next season's Heineken Cup. They are eighth.

In the RaboDirect Pro12, Leinster brought their fellow Heineken Cup semi-finalists Edinburgh down to earth with a bump with an eight-try, 58-13 win at the RDS in Dublin. The Newport-Gwent Dragons lost 33-32 at home to Treviso.
