Davies put the Jets ahead with a third minute penalty before both sides tried to run the ball across the width of the excellent Heywood Road pitch. Thomas, Beaumont and Royle were involved in a good early move which deserved better reward than the ball ending in touch, then former Jet O'Donnell led a Cavaliers reply.
The action was non-stop but, despite some good offloading and thrilling runs from Ingall and Royle, the next two scores on 17 and 20 minutes were two more bullet-like penalties from Davies. Both number eights - Doyle and Cowan - broke from the bases of their scrums to make positive charges but the game's first try didn't arrive until 31 minutes, with Davies finishing off a sweeping backs' move. He converted to leave the score: Jordan Davies 16, Worcester Cavaliers 0.
After the try, there was the unfortunate sight of Henry Thomas having to be led from the field with an ankle injury
The home attacks gathered intensity and after 36 minutes Beaumont, James and Davies combined to send flying winger Royle over for try two. Davies converted. The final attack of the first half was from Worcester fullback Howard who collected a high ball and was on a decent run until stopped in his tracks by Jacob.
The Jets started the second half with a rolling maul, then a series of darting runs. An entertaining phase ended when Haley was over zealous with his pass to Ingall. Worcester's Porter and Howard made good breaks from defence but the impetus swiftly returned to the home side. Jennings and Doyle made significant surges before try three arrived after 65 minutes. Birchall, back after an eighteen month absence through injury, scythed through the centre to set up Royle for his second try. James added the conversion.
Four minutes later, a James chip and chase led to a try from the supporting Jennings for the bonus point. Worcester continued to try and make the most of limited possession but with two minutes of play left, a strong drive from Flynn set up a try on the left for James, who converted his own effort.
Jets' coach Pete Anglesea praised the heart, commitment and desire of his team:
"Worcester came out to play a lot of rugby, but I was pleased by the physicality of our side," he said. "We were good in the rucks and mauls and looked after the ball in greasy conditions. Tom Holmes led from the front and the lads showed their pride in wearing the Sale Sharks shirt."
