Northampton Saints fly-half Stephen Myler says that 'hard work paid off' in their Aviva Premiership victory over Sale Sharks.

Saints held on to third place in the table with the 24-17 win, with Myler slotting seven penalties.

Myler told BBC Radio Northampton: "It wasn't as much of a spectacle as people would like, but a win's a win, and we're really happy with that.

"It's nice when some hard work that you've been doing pays off."

Hard work 'paying off' for Myler

He continued: "Four points at home is great, and it has pushed us on, especially going into next week [away to London Irish], that's going to be a difficult task.

"We've had tough games against them and so we're expecting nothing less, irrespective of [the fact that] they've lost today."
