FORMER ALL Blacks midfielder Sam Tuitupou has signed a two-year deal with Sale.
Tuitupou is currently plying his trade for Irish heavyweights Munster, but will join the Sharks next season.
“Sam is a great signing for us,” said the club’s executive director of sport Steve Diamond.
“He has a great work-rate, is very strong in the contact area and will boost our backline in both attack and defence.”
Born in Auckland, the 29-year-old played nine tests for the All Blacks before joining Worcester four years ago.
He then signed with Munster last summer after Worcester was relegated from England’s premier club competition.
