Northampton boss Jim Mallinder praised his side's attacking play in the wake of their eight-try victory over Sale on Saturday.
The Saints director of rugby said it had been a joint decision between coaching staff and players to chase tries rather than kick their penalty opportunities during the game.
And the tactic paid off, with half of the hosts' tries coming as a direct result of the policy.
"It's about reading the situation," said Mallinder. "And when your forwards are in so much control it makes sense to keep the pressure on.
"The players know how the mauls and scrums are going and whether or not they should kick their goals."
Mallinder was particularly pleased with his pack, whose domination throughout the clash forced two penalty tries.
"Sale were struggling a little bit up front," he added. "But they put us under a lot of pressure in the first 40 or 50 minutes."
"They will have been disappointed to lose Peel to injury, and then with the sending-off.
"But they have some good players and people like Charlie Hodgson can make them play. At half-time we were still not in the clear, despite scoring our first-half tries."
The win provides Saints with a boost ahead next weekend's Heineken Cup quarter-final against Ulster at Milton Keynes.
But Mallinder is under no Illusions that his side will have to remain at the top of their game if they are to secure a place in the last four. "It's going to be a really tough game, but it's one we are capable of winning," he insisted.
