Magnus Lund Signs New Deal

Sale Sharks are delighted to announce that Flanker Magnus Lund has signed a new two year deal with the club until the end of the 2016-2017 season.

Magnus, in his second spell at the club has been one of the stand-out players in the squad and is one of the Aviva Premiership’s top performers in the weekly rounds.

Magnus, 31, was originally a member of the Sharks Academy and made his debut in 2002 against Bristol Shoguns. He was also a member of the side that lifted the Championship Trophy in 2006 and gained 10 England Caps.

Magnus left the club in 2008 for a six year stint at Biarritz where he was club captain and appeared in the 2010 Heineken Cup Final against Toulouse.

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, "I was delighted to sign Magnus in the summer and he has fitted in perfectly with the squad. Magnus has played in 20 games this season and his consistent performances attracted the interest of two other Premiership clubs looking to try and sign him. Thankfully he has signed a new deal with us for the next two years."

After signing his new deal Magnus said, "I am delighted to have signed a new deal with the club. We have a good group of players here and I firmly believe the club is moving in the right direction. Lets hope we can push on now and make the top six which was our pre season target."
