Transfer News: Scotland international signs new three-year deal

Scotland winger Byron McGuigan has signed a new three-year deal with Sale Sharks.

McGuigan made his international debut earlier this season but was not part of the matchday squad which beat England in the Calcutta Cup last Saturday after recent hamstring trouble.


Namibian-born Byron, who is Scottish-qualified through his mother, started out his career with Border Bulldogs in South Africa before then moving to the Northern Hemisphere and joining Glasgow Warriors following an impressive display for Scotland 7s in the 2011/12 HSBC Sevens World Series

Byron spent two years at Scotstoun, scoring four tries in 20 appearances and also winning a Scotland A cap. He then crossed south of the border, moving to Exeter in November 2014 going on to make more than 20 appearances for the Chiefs.

However, Byron’s career really took flight once he joined the Sharks in the summer of 2016.

In his debut campaign with Sale, Byron scored six tries from 20 appearances and hugely impressed both with his razor-sharp finishing skills and excellent defensive work.
