Sale Sharks can now announce that Sam Moore has left the club with immediate effect to join Cardiff Blues on a long-term contract.
The 21-year old Number 8 joined Sale Sharks at 14 and progressed through the Sale Sharks academy ranks to sign a first team contract in 2017. Sam has made eight appearances for the senior side since his debut two years ago.
The age grade England International who has represented England at U16s, 17s, 18s, 19s and U20’s level is welsh qualified through his farther Steve, who played three times for Wales and also played for the Blues.
Commenting on the announcement Sam said: “I’m really pleased to be joining Cardiff Blues. Having met Richard Holland and Alun Jones, spoken at length to the coaches at both the Blues and Wales, I am convinced this is the best place for me to progress my career.”
“I am eternally grateful to Sale Sharks, who gave me my first opportunity. I have been in their system since I was 14 and have a huge amount of friends there. I wish them the very best for the future.
“But I was born in Cardiff and my Dad played here in the 90s so it is a place that is close to my heart and I cannot wait to get started at the Arms Park.
“While I grew up in England and came through the system there, I view myself as a Welshman and it would be great to reach the same heights as my dad and uncle.”
The club would like to wish Sam good luck with his move to the Pro 14 and every success for the future.
