Sale Sharks sack coach Mike Brewer

Sale Sharks have announced that Mike Brewer will be leaving the club with immediate effect and will be replaced by Academy Coach Pete Anglesea who will fulfill the role until the end of the season.

Anglesea will be assisted by new forwards coach Steve Scott, current backs Coach Byron Hayward and defence coach Graham Steadman.

Sale Sharks under Brewer managed just three wins out of nine games this season and have lost four of the last five games in all competitions.


Forty seven year old Brewer took over as coach of Sale after a stint with Scotland as Forwards coach but was overlooked as a replacement for coach Frank Hadden.


Brewer was appointed in April this year and replaced England world cup winning winger Jason Robinson.


Commenting on the news Club Owner Brian Kennedy said,”We would like to thank Mike for the dedication and commitment he has shown to the Club.


“I am personally very disappointed that this has not worked out as I have a great deal of respect for him and of course I wish him all the best for the future.”


“Pete Anglesea is the obvious choice to lead the team in the short term.


“He has been part of the Club for many years as a player and his coaching record this season with the Jets and the Anglo Welsh LV= Cup Squad is exemplary and he has yet to taste defeat.


“We will now undertake a thorough search to secure the best coaching team and structure for the future.

” We have a superb crop of young players coming through the Academy, a set of established Internationals plus the desire to make a number of key new signings over the next 6 months. “
