Good back row option there. Always looked lively for Sale.

Can he play wing...?

On a serious note, good signing, physical ball carrier who can get us on the front foot

This is a great signing! Always thought he looked good for Sale, brought physicality and was always a menace at the breakdown! I am happy for some of our winger budget to be taken up by him

As a Sale fan, sad to see TJ go. You've got a player who will give 110% every game and is a great club man as well. Hope he does well for you.

Good signing and probably pushing for first choice Number 8. Kidney and Kiss seem to have got three good players.

We do appear to have a lot of back row options this season - I make it 8 senior squad and 4 academy plus McNally able to play blindside. Any cash left for another wing or two if Ransom is off?

Now that's a signing to get everyone to take note and the Championship will be a better place for a season for it. For me as close a like for like replacement for Botha as you can get. I assumed he was out of our reach so a massive well done to all involved to get him over.

Would also say that at the start of the off season we were all looking at what Ealing were doing and getting worried they were getting closer, I believe now the boot is on the other foot and the gap has widened again

I would be surprised if some prem clubs didn't want his services so am really impressed that we got him. Our back row looks really good! Do we know if he has played at 8 regularly?

He's an abrasive carrier, we need that gainline type of player desperately.

It looks like K and K believe that the way to the top is to have plenty of depth in the pack, we play quite a few league games and the unrelenting demands generally punish those without pack depth.

Think he has played in all three back row positions for Sale.

He has played across the back three for us. He is probably most effective as a 6. Can be a bit of a penalty liability which is as much due to his over-enthusiasm and commitment than anything else!

I wonder how much of an influence Trev is with Samoan signings? Maybe none at all but given he has skippered Samoa perhaps he has some weight with the players looking for clubs

Very good signing, would hold his own in most Prem squads and will be a regular starter for us I expect.
