SIGNED: Sale Sharks sign Exeter Chiefs winger

Sale Sharks have announced that winger Tom O’Flaherty has signed a long-term contract to join the club ahead of the 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership season.

The prolific 27-year-old, who has scored 35 tries in 91 appearances for Exeter Chiefs, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal.

The former Ospreys star will join Alex Sanderson’s squad at the end of the season, and the Sharks Director of Rugby says his new man will be a massive addition to the club on and off the field.

Alex said: β€œWhen I sat down with Tom it was clear straight away that he’s a brilliant guy who really wants to play for this club. I have no doubt he’ll bring as much to the club off the field as he will on it.

β€œFor us, making sure we’re bringing in good people is absolutely essential if we’re going to create and build the right environment and culture at the club.

β€œOn the field, Tom’s record speaks for itself. He’s been a huge part of an Exeter side that’s been so successful in recent years and I’m confident he’ll be a fantastic addition.

β€œTom is 27 years old and he’s coming here in his prime, with his very best years ahead of him. It’s a massive boost for the club and it’s a big indication of what we’re all about and where we’re trying to get to.”
