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.
Sale Sharks Community Trust are offering a great opportunity for players between 12-16 years old to fine tune their rugby skills and work with a range of professional coaches, including Sale Sharks academy coaches, County DPP coaches and RFU qualified coach developers.
