Beaumont pleased with Sale deal
Josh Beaumont says he is delighted after putting pen-to-paper on a new contract with Sale Sharks until 2021.
England international Beaumont, who captained the club during the 2016/17 campaign, has decided to extend his rugby career in the North West for another three years.
The 26-year-old, who can play at Number 8 and second row, follows Jono Ross and Ben Curry in pledging their future to the English outfit and the Blackpool-born star is looking forward to what the future holds.
"I'm delighted to be re-signing again at Sale Sharks. The ambition that the owners and Dimes are showing in moving the club forward made it in an easy decision for me, and it's something I want to be part of," Beaumont was quoted as saying by Rugby Pass.
"With numerous other senior players re-signing and the calibre of Academy talent coming through, I believe we can become one of the strongest teams in the country and start winning trophies on a regular basis."
Director of Rugby Steve Diamond also commented on the deal, saying: "I'm delighted that Beau has agreed a new contract with the club. He is a North-West lad and has come all the way through our Academy which is a great advert for what we are doing here at Sale."
James Mason grew up in Northumberland so is entrenched in both the football and golf scenes. A low handicap golfer, he also follows Newcastle United and predicts big things under Rafa Benitez.
