Scorecard 

Worcester Warriors registered their second draw of the season after the 34-34 thriller against Sale at Sixways stadium on Saturday which saw nine tries being scored by both teams as each of them earned a try bonus point.

The hosts edged the visitors by a try, however, Sale's Alan MacGinty won the kicking contest against rival fly-half Ryan Lamb to square up the scoreboard.

Jonny Arr (28), Perry Humphreys (37) and Wynand Olivier (42) scored a try each for Worcester, while Jamie Shillcock (17, 52) scored a double.

Will Addison (3, 19) scored a couple of tries for Sale, while Neil Briggs (66) and Halani 'Aulika (76) scored a try each.

MacGinty, in addition to scoring two penalties, converted all four tries as opposed to Lamb who missed out on a couple of costly conversions apart from scoring a penalty.

The result has left Worcester unaffected in the points table as they continue to be seated on the 11th position, while Sale slipped a position as Quins climbed one place after their victory over Saracens.
