– Steve Diamond, Sale rugby director
All four are really good lads who have a great work ethic and they are people who care about the club.''
"We are really pleased that they have all re-committed to Sale, and they will be very important to us going forward into next season."
Sale Sharks have signalled their intent for next season by making a triple swoop ahead of this Saturday’s final Aviva Premiership game at home to Wasps.
The side have confirmed the signing of powerful forwards Michael Paterson, Kirill Kulemin and Charlie Walker-Blair.
Sale sharks player Danny Cipriani is in hospital after being hit by a double decker bus in Leeds.
The Rugby star was on a night out when it happened yesterday evening.
He is in a stable condition.
Aviva Premiership club London Welsh have lost their appeal against a five-point deduction and £15,0000 fine for fielding an ineligible player in this season's competition.
A further five-point penalty, though, that was suspended until the end of next season has been removed.
The independent appeal panel's decision means London Welsh are five points adrift at the Premiership basement of 11th-placed Sale Sharks with just four league games left.
The Sale Sharks have lost 32-14 to Harlequins in the final of the LV Cup.
