Sale Sharks have signed loosehead prop Tom Bristow from Narbonne.


The 27-year-old, 118kg prop played for London Welsh, Leicester Tigers and Wasps in Gallagher Premierhsip Rugby before moving to France last year. Whilst at Welsh and Tigers, a playing colleague was Sharks Academy Transition Coach Neil Briggs.

He made 24 appearances for Narbonne last season in the French Pro D2

Bristow said: “It’s a bit different at Carrington from the South of France, but great to be back in the U.K.

“The opportunity to come and play for a Gallagher Premiership club is not one to turn down.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know all the lads here, and becoming a member of the Sharks front row.”

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond added: “Tom’s been on our radar for some time, and he’s well known to Neil Briggs. We will offer him a warm welcome to the Sharks squad and he will significantly improve our options in the front row.”
