Sale agree deal for Lund

Magnus Lund has signed for Aviva Premiership club Sale Sharks following six years with Biarritz

Sale Sharks have announced the signing of former England flanker Magnus Lund.

Lund will return to Sale for his second spell after a six-year stint with French club Biarritz.

Manchester-born Lund, 31, was a member of Sale's Premiership title-winning team in 2006, having joined them four years previously.

He gained 10 Test caps and helped England's sevens team win a silver medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

Sale rugby director Steve Diamond said: "I am delighted Magnus has signed for us.

"I gave him his debut back in 2002 and have followed his career down the years. He is a great signing for us and will fit in perfectly with our plans."
