Chris Cusiter: Signed a two-year deal

Sale Sharks have announced the signing of Scotland and former British and Irish Lions scrum-half Chris Cusiter on a two-year deal.

Cusiter will join Sale Sharks next season from his current club Glasgow Warriors.

He started his professional career with Border Reivers in 2003 and then moved to Perpignan in 2007 before joining Glasgow in 2009.

Capped 66 times by Scotland (first being against Wales in 2004), Chris also toured with the 2005 British and Irish Lions, gaining one cap.

Sale's director of rugby Steve Diamond said he was delighted that Cusiter has opted to join the club.

"Chris is a great signing for the club," he told Sale Sharks' official website.

"We have signed him to replace Dwayne Peel who is leaving us after six years at the club and we know that Chris will be the quality replacement we need.

"A lot of credit for the signing must go to Bryan Redpath who knows Chris well. Chris will join us in the close season and we look forward to him arriving."
