Sale have signed England Saxons hooker Joe Ward from Wasps on a two-year contract.

Ward, 30, has made more than 160 appearances for Wasps, where he is club captain, and will join fellow new arrival Tony Buckley at Edgeley Park in the summer.

"This is another statement of intent for the club as we continue building a big competitive pack for next season and beyond," said executive director of sport Steve Diamond.

"Joe has been one of the top performers in the Aviva Premiership over the last six seasons and I am looking forward to working with him when he joins us in June."
