Kruger’s move to Sale called off

Date published: June 15 2016

Sale Sharks director of rugby Steve Diamond has announced that Juandré Kruger will not be joining the club as anticipated.

"After extensive conversations with the player, it became apparent in the last week that Juandré and his family would not settle in Manchester," the club announced on Wednesday.

"However disappointing this is, the club has stepped up the global search for a lock and a winger."

Steve Diamond said in a statement: "Regardless of reputation, my recruitment drive, as always, will be based on people who have ambition and want to wear the shirt of Sale Sharks."
