Maybe another prop that has escaped us?
Not sure he would have been a target but we will need something for next year?

To be fair he’s not unknown to sale. 5 year contract though, they must have some serious confidence in him. Not sure anyone else in the league would hand a contract out of that length.

Think Sarries dished out a contract similar to that to Ashton? But I agree it shows serious confidence

Haven't they given 4 years to Solomona?
Maybe it's becoming like baseball - lock them into long contracts to someone has to buy them out if they want to leave?

Pretty sure Sale gave a 4 or 5 year contract to the Curry twins? The comments back then were that it means you either get them for that period or get a good chunk of cash from anyone who wants to buy out the contract.

But if the guy doesn't turn out well, you're lumbered with a dead dog for a number of years.

I say dog, elephant may be more appropriate. *

Would imagine Sale are especially sensitive about bringing on young players then losing them to the likes of.....Northampton Saints.

Its more of a case you need to tie them in before they realize that it doesn't rain 90% of the time in the rest of the country :-)

Also, at 18 you can tie in a player with potential for not a lot. 5 years time, the player could be a world cup winning international, potentially on the same wage!

I would suggest a 5 year contract to a (relatively) untried / tested prop is more detrimental to the player than to the club?

Lets say he's first team at 24, capped by Wales at 25 - he still won't get a pay rise from his "long shot" signing salary for 2 more years

realistically outperformance would mean a re-negotiation

Nah, he’s from Mold in N Wales, which is wetter than an otter’s pocket!
