Director of Rugby Steve Diamond has been involved with Sale Sharks for most of his professional career in various different guises and knows the club inside out.
An abrasive hooker as a player, his eleven years as a player at Sale stood him in good stead as he made a return in 2001, alongside Jim Mallinder, to coach the team. After stints with England Saxons, Saracens and the Russian National Team, 'Dimes' returned to Sale, taking over from the departing Mike Brewer.
Often combining a number of roles, including CEO at one time, Diamond has overseen a huge changearound at the club. His no nonsense approach has won him a loyal fan base at Sale Sharks and he will hope that after a few years of uncertainty and transition, he has assembled a coaching and playing staff capable of returning the club to its former glory.
