The good news keeps on coming! Sale FC have signed Sale Sharks Hooker, Neil Briggs for the upcoming 2017-18 season. Neil has made more than 120 appearances for Sale Sharks over two spells including playing with side that won the Premiership trophy in 2006, he’s also played for Leicester Tigers and London Welsh RFC. This is a massive signing for Sale FC and demonstrates that Jonathan Keep‘s side aren’t resting on their second place success of last year. Neil comes to us not only as a Hooker but as part of his coach development will work alongside the Sale FC coaching team on specialist coaching issues. Neil will also be working with The Sale Sharks in their coaching set up. For the younger players in the squad, it’ll be invaluable having a player of his pedigree supporting their future development as well.
