Sale Sharks have signed Leinster scrum-half Cillin Willis on loan for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old made his debut in Sale's 23-10 defeat to Saracens, coming on for the last 20 minutes.

Injuries to regular scrum-halves Dwayne Peel and Scott Mathie left coach Steve Diamond needing cover for Will Cliff, who is the only fit number nine.

The former Ireland Under-21 player started his career at Leinster before spells at Ulster and Connacht.
