Northampton boss Jim Mallinder critical of victory over Sale
Northampton chief Jim Mallinder was critical of his side, despite their 27-16 defeat of Sale.
The Saints dominated the first half, running in three tries, but failed to notch another touchdown after taking their foot off the pedal.
"I was slightly disappointed with the second half performance," Mallinder said.
"I think in the first half we were very good and dominated the game.
"Our scrum was on top, as well as our driving maul. We defended well and therefore took our opportunities at the right time.
"We talked about doing exactly the same thing in the second half and we didn't do that.
"I'm disappointed with the second half but we got the win and that's important, particularly away from home."
Sharks boss John Mitchell said: "Northampton's forward pack was outstanding in the first half.
"We never built any pressure or any starting position. In the second half, we showed better character and built some pressure.
"The forwards had a torrid time tonight. We're still very immature as a side and we get frustrated easily, so we've got to learn to become more patient.
"We've got a lot of work to do in the forward area."
