Sale Sharks are delighted to announce the signing of Magnus Lund from Biarritz.
Magnus returns to the club after playing in France for the last six years. He made his Sale Sharks debut back in 2002 against Bristol Shoguns as a 19 year old and was a member of the team that won the Championship at Twickenham in May 2006, scoring our first try in the win over Leicester Tigers.
During his six years as a Sharks player Magnus was also capped 10 times by England and was a Silver Medal winner in the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Australia in the England Sevens team that also included David Seymour.
During his time in France Magnus captained Biarritz and was also a member of their team that were runners up to Toulouse in the 2010 Heineken Cup Final.
Sale Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, "I am delighted Magnus has signed. I gave him his debut back in 2002 and have followed his career down the years. He is a great signing for us and will fit in perfectly with our plans."
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Sale boss Steve Diamond believes that some good old-fashioned home comforts can help drive the Sharks to a second successive top-six Premiership finish this season.
