Aviva Premiership Rugby club Sale Sharks have taken the first steps to replacing Danny Cipriani by signing Nottingham flyhalf Dan Mugford.

Cipriani has agreed to leave Sale Sharks and join his former team Wasps from next season.

Twenty-four-year old Dan has been one of the top performing players in the Championship with both Nottingham and his previous club Plymouth. Dan also spent two years with the Exeter Academy.

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, “ Dan has been on our radar for a while and when he became available we made our move to sign him. Dan is still a very young man with lots of potential and I am sure he will make his mark in the Premiership next season,”

Dan Mugford said, “ Really excited about joining Sale Sharks. I have been up to Manchester and had a look around the club and met the staff. ”

“It’s a fantastic environment and a big step up to join an established Premiership club like Sharks. I look forward to giving it my best shot and am very grateful to Nottingham for helping me progress my game which has given me this opportunity of playing in the Premiership.”
