Sharks academy graduate Tommy Taylor re-signed for Sale ahead of the 2021/22 season after five years with Premiership rivals Wasps.
England hooker Tommy began his professional career in the Sale Sharks Academy, but retained strong links to his home club Macclesfield for whom he appeared in the National Leagues while winning England Counties honours.
In 2011, Taylor followed his father’s footsteps into the Sale first-team and went on to make 106 appearances for the Sharks, getting international recognition in England’s non-cap matches against the Barbarians in 2014 and 2015 before earning his first cap against Wales.
After joining Wasps in 2016, Taylor enjoyed a brilliant first season making 26 appearances and scoring four tries as his club reached the Premiership final.
His second season was badly affected by knee and shoulder injuries, but he proved a handful in his 16 appearances during the 2018/19 campaign - before making a further 16 in 2019/20.
He reached the 50-appearance milestone for the club at the beginning of the 2019/20 season.
Tommy made his return to Sharks on the opening day of the 2021/22 season when he was named among the replacements for the game against Bath Rugby.
