Wales international moves to the Gallagher Premiership with immediate effect

Sale Sharks has pulled off a transfer coup by securing the services of Welsh tighthead prop WillGriff John on a short-term agreement.

The 31-year-old, who boasts two caps for Wales, was officially added to Sale’s roster earlier this week, just in time for their upcoming Challenge Cup clash against the Ospreys this Saturday.

In a move aimed at bolstering their squad depth, Sale has inked a deal with John until the culmination of the current season, providing valuable backup for Nick Schonert.

John’s association with Sale dates back to 2017 when he initially joined from Doncaster, where he notched up an impressive 82 appearances over four seasons.

Following his stint with Sale, John moved on to the Scarlets, where he spent two seasons, earning 19 appearances and representing Wales twice before a brief stint with Racing 92 in France. Now, he’s back on English soil, poised to make an impact once again in Premiership rugby.


#5. Chris Robshaw (England)

Former England rugby captain known for his relentless work ethic and leadership on the field. Robshaw’s distinguished career saw him become a stalwart of English rugby, earning accolades for his tenacity in the back row and commitment to the team’s success.

Owens said: Some people will be surprised at this one to start off. His misfortune was perhaps to be leading England during a difficult time, but he always gave everything for the cause, encouraging others to follow suit, and he was a nice guy off the pitch.”
