Sale have announced the signing of versatile Romanian prop Alexandru Tarus, who will join the Premiership club on a two-year deal.
Tarus currently plays for Beziers in Pro D2 and has 16 caps for Romania, playing twice in the 2015 World Cup, against Ireland and Canada.
“Alexandru is a great signing for us, he can play both sides of the scrum although he’s a specialist tighthead,” said boss Steve Diamond.
“He is a big lad at 1.85m, weighing 125kg’s and he will, I am sure, fit perfectly at the Sharks.”
Tarus, who was at Carrington on Monday meeting his new team-mates, said: “This is a great opportunity for me to play in the Premiership.
“I know Vadim Cobilas well and he told me what a great club Sale Sharks are to play for.”
