Sale pair get new deals

Centre Sam Tuitupou and prop Eifion Lewis-Roberts have both agreed new contracts with Sale Sharks.

The Aviva Premiership club confirmed two-year deals for both players.

Tuitupou, 32, won nine caps for New Zealand and joined Sale from Munster in 2011.

Lewis-Roberts, meanwhile, has been a Sale player since 2005, bar one season spent with French club Toulon. The 33-year-old was capped by Wales against Canada in 2008.

"We are delighted that both Eifion and Sammy have agreed their new two-year deals," Sale rugby director Steve Diamond said.

"They are both great lads and key members of our squad, and we are delighted they are staying on."
