Higgins joins Sale
Sale have announced the signing of former Bath three-quarter Andrew Higgins on a one-year contract.
The 30-year-old was released by the Exeter Chiefs at the end of the season, and Sharks executive director of sport Steve Diamond has made him the latest addition to his squad following a summer overhaul.
Diamond said: "We knew we had a shortfall over the World Cup period. Andrew wants to start his career again, and we thought this would be a good opportunity for him. He's impressed in training and we'll see where he can get to."
Higgins, who has trained with the club for two weeks before completing his deal, added: "I'm very excited to be joining Sale Sharks. The boys have been working hard, and it's been a case of getting up to speed with everyone else."
