Championship side Leeds Carnegie have signed prop Lee Imiolek on a season-long loan from Sale Sharks.
The 21-year-old came through the Sharks youth ranks, and has gone on to make 26 appearances for the club over the last three seasons.
Imiolek has also represented England at Under-16, Under-18 and Under-20 levels.
He said of his move: "The chance to play week-to-week rugby in the Championship is a great opportunity for me and one I want to make the most of."
He added: "I don't know too much about the Championship but I know there are some tough front rowers in this competition and I am looking forward to testing myself against them."
