Sale Sharks to trial Dragons winger

James Lewis has joined Sale Sharks for a trial period, seeking one of the places available on the wings in Head Coach Mike Brewer’s formative squad.

James was a member of the Newport Gwent Dragons Academy, under Sale legend Paul Turner, for four years from the age of sixteen.

“I had to leave Wales to broaden my experience,” he said, “so I joined Coventry.

The past season was a ‘bit of a tricky year’ for the once-famous Midlands club which went into administration: the players weren’t being paid and for a spell around Christmas weren’t training together.

“I’m happy that it’s all behind me now, and I have a chance to progress at Sale Sharks.”

Lewis, aged 22, is 1.87m (6ft 2ins) tall and weighs 90kgs (14st 2 lbs). He can play on either wing, but is stronger on the left.
