Sale Sharks sign Harlequins prop

Sale Sharks have announced that prop forward Ashton Croall has joined the club from Harlequins on a three year deal.

Twenty five year old Aston is 6 feet tall, and weighs 18st 7lbs. and joined his new colleagues for training at Carrington last Monday.

He grew up on the Isle of Sheppey, and first played for Saracens, where he gained England representative honours at Under-19 and Under-21 level. He was the club’s captain in the Guinness ‘A’ League final last season against Leicester Tigers.

Sharks’ Head Coach Mike Brewer said, “I have been impressed with Aston for a while. He is a strong scrummager and very accurate defender. He has a high work rate for a prop.

“I will be looking to develop his ball carrying ability and exchanges in the collision. Aston also has the added bonus in that as well as playing at Loose Head he can also play Hooker.”

Chief Executive Mick Hogan added, ” Aston is a good signing for us in that he is a talented young English Front Row Forward.

“Mike has done well to get Aston on board and it’s our fourth new signing announcement this week following the signatures of Paul Williams, Wame Lewaravu and Kyle Tonetti.

We have some more signings to announce next week and will also be able to announce some important off field signings too in the near future.”
