Sale complete Chesney deal

Sale have confirmed the signing of experienced flanker Kris Chesney from Toulon.

Chesney, 37, who spent 12 seasons with Saracens before departing for France in 2009, will join the Edgeley Park side on a two-year deal in the summer.

Chesney is the second back-rower to be confirmed as a Sale signing, the club earlier announcing the capture of Mark Easter from Northampton.

The Sharks executive director of rugby Steve Diamond said: "I had the pleasure of working with Kris when I was in charge at Saracens.

"He has a great work ethic, is good in the line-out and is a very tough, uncompromising player.

"He has been playing well for Toulon since his move to France last year. This is another piece of my jigsaw completed with lots more signings to come."
