RUMOUR | Sale winger Marland Yarde linked with Premiership rival

Sale Sharks winger Marland Yarde is out of contract with at the end of the Gallagher Premiership season and has already been touted to Leicester, according to Mail Online.

His explosive pace and lethal finishing were quick to be recognised at international level with Marland awarded his first England cap on the summer tour to Argentina in 2013 where he scored a brace of tries on his debut.

Marland has since won 13 caps in total, claiming eight tries in total, his latest appearances coming on this summer’s tour to Argentina.

Tigers winger Jonny May is expected to go the other way after a stand-off in negotiations at Welford Road because the club want to cut his salary by more than £100,000 a year.


While Leicester are still hopeful of a new deal, Sale are closely monitoring developments and are considering a move for the 29-year-old following the sudden departure of Chris Ashton.

Newcastle Falcons had been favourite to sign May, but due to Coronavirus chaos have had to pull out of negotiations which were though to be at an advanced stage.

LIST | A look at the day jobs of Women’s Six Nations stars

Behind the glitz and glamour of the Women’s Six Nations, many world-class players must work around the clock to fund their rugby dream.

1. Elinor Snowsill (Wales) – Healthy food company

The Wales international fly-half set up healthy food company Onest Food in 2014, continuing in her rugby career while running the business.

Snowsill started Onest by operating food vans outside gyms, but expanded to delivery following a conversation with a friend who was looking for a healthy eating plan and wanted the food delivered.

She specifically sought out those business models in order to ensure that she did not have to work on weekends so as to leave time to play rugby. Her signature dish uses an omelette style egg as a wrap.
