London - Tonga number eight Sione Kalamafoni scored two tries in five minutes to inspire Gloucester's 23-19 win over Sale in the English Premiership on Friday.
Kalamafoni's quickfire double strike edged to victory at Kingsholm and ended Sale's hopes of posting a first league away win since February.
Fullback Rob Cook also touched down for Gloucester, while skipper Billy Twelvetrees kicked two penalties and substitute scrumhalf Greig Laidlaw added a conversion, leaving Sale to collect nothing more than a losing bonus point.
Sharks flyhalf Danny Cipriani, who is among a host of players hoping to impress new England head coach Eddie Jones in the build-up to this season's Six Nations, produced some exquisite touches, including some stunning approach work for Sale's opening try.
Wing Nev Edwards claimed both Sale touchdowns, while Cipriani slotted three penalties, yet Gloucester ultimately prevailed, claiming a third Premiership win from six starts this season.
