Ross is named Sharks skipper
RUGBY UNION: Jono Ross has been named as Sale Sharks’ new captain.
The back row forward started every Premiership game for the club last season having joined Sale from Stade Francais.
Ross, who was born in South Africa but is England qualified, replaces Will Addison who has joined Ulster.
“Sale Sharks is a club looking to go places and it’s a real privilege to be captain,” said Ross.
“Nothing changes, really. I’ll probably have to speak a little more. The guys will probably tell you I say a lot anyway!
“Hopefully, I can take the club to new heights. It’s an exciting time.”
Sale start their Gallagher Premiership campaign against Harlequins at The Stoop on September 1 before hosting Worcester Warriors in their first home game on September 9.
