Winning ugly no problem for Northampton's Stephen Myler
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."
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."
