Tom Curry Re-Signs for Sale Sharks

Gallagher Premiership Rugby club Sale Sharks are very pleased to announce that open side flanker Tom Curry has signed a contract extension which will keep him in the North West until 2023.

Tom, who will be 21 next June, first appeared for the Sharks in October 2016 against Scarlets in the European Champions Cup, scored a try at Bristol on his Premiership debut a fortnight later, and was a member of England’s touring party in Argentina in Summer 2017.

Tom made his full international debut in San Juan in June, and was described in the media as the outstanding performer of the quartet of new faces fielded that day.

Tom, the youngest England debutant since Jonny Wilkinson, was a constant threat at the breakdown, tackled furiously and showed some nice touches in attack.

He is a member of England’s current squad, with five caps to his name.

Tom said, “I’m delighted to put pen to paper again at such an exciting time for the club, with recent announcements of re-signings (including twin brother Ben) and reported signings in the future.”

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond added: “I’m delighted that England international Tom has pledged his future with the club. He’s come though the Academy and, along with his brother, has been a revelation.

He’s already a senior member of the playing group and is the best example of the modern-day professional rugby player: dedicated, clean living, abrasive and he has a great knowledge of the game for one so young.”
