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 is one of the leading professional rugby union clubs in Europe. The club has won the Premiership title and twice lifted the European Challenge Cup. We are now expanding our commercial team as part of strategy to dramatically increase revenues in a year when the Rugby World Cup is held in England.
