Commenting on the move, Ben said: “I was lucky enough to be invited to play in the Premiership Rugby Shield with Sale this season and I have really enjoyed it so far. It’s been great to play with some really class players and I am so grateful to the Sharks for giving me such an amazing opportunity to further my rugby.
