Sale Sharks are delighted to announce the signing of Georgian Hooker Shalva Mamukashvili.
Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, " With the knee injury Tommy Taylor sustained playing for England against the Barbarians keeping him out for six months I decided to bring in a top class hooker to add to the squad. Shalva is the current Georgian starting hooker who is very abrasive and aggressive in defence. He speaks fluent English and will also have Vadim Cobilas and Andrei Ostrikov to help him settle in. We have applied for the necessary Visa and Work Permit and hopefully all the formalities will be completed quickly."
Shalva currently plays for Armia(Georgia) and was born in Tbilisi on 2nd October 1990.
Former Scotland and British & Irish Lions lock Nathan Hines has been recruited to the Scotland national coaching team on a two-year contract, following his decision to retire from playing the game after a season at Sale Sharks.
