Mark Cueto broke Steve Hanley's Premiership try-scoring record as Sale battled back to beat Exeter 21-16 at the Salford City Stadium on Friday.

Exeter looked well in control after a try from Watisoni Votu and eight points from Gareth Steenson eased the visitors into a 13-5 half-time lead.

Dan Braid gave the Sharks hope when he went over before Steenson extended the advantage early in the second half.

But England international Cueto, 33, inspired a dramatic Sale revival as he touched down for his 76th domestic score before Rob Miller kicked a penalty.

And the hosts secured an important victory through Danny Cipriani's three-pointer and Nick Macleod's drop-goal.
