Tom Brady among four Sale Sharks players to sign new deals

Winger Tom Brady, lock Tom Holmes, number eight Mark Easter and front-row forward Aston Croall have all signed new contracts with Sale Sharks.

Their decisions to stay come in a week when Sale have added six new players ahead of the 2013-14 season.

Michael Paterson, Charlie Walker-Blair, Kirill Kulemin, Phil Mackenzie, Andy Forsyth and Dan Baines will all be moving to the Salford City Stadium.

Sale round off their Premiership campaign at home to Wasps on Saturday.

Brady, 22, has endured a season hampered by injury, but produced a match-winning contribution against Bath in March to help Sale in their battle for survival.
