Richie Vernon's signing was confirmed just days after he played for Scotland in their 2011 Calcutta Cup clash with England and making 20 appearances at full international level.

Recruited by the Sharks from Glasgow, the back row offers the versatility of also being able to play at number eight and has been capped by his country at all levels, including in the Sevens game.

One of his country’s most athletic and skilful forward, he followed in the footsteps of Jason White, who headed south from Glasgow to Sale in 2003 and went on to become a hugely influential figure at the Sharks.
