Danny Cipriani is hoping Sale Sharks can continue their impressive home form when they take on Montpellier in the European Rugby Challenge Cup

Danny Cipriani is hoping Sale can continue their impressive home form when they face Montpellier in Friday's European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final.

The Sharks head into the game on the back of a 30-15 win away at London Irish last Saturday, with Cipriani scoring 20 points.

And the England fly-half is eager to ensure they continue their good form at the AJ Bell Stadium.

"It's a very hard league in the Premiership. When you've got home games, it's such a massive advantage. The conditions and the wind - we're used to it.

"We're getting some good results and we're pretty happy with how our form is going there."

Montpellier, currently sitting second in the Top 14, are sure to offer Sale a difficult challenge, but Cipriani is confident his side can get the job done, having beaten the likes of Castres and Newport Gwent Dragons at home already in the competition.
