Thomas signs new deal with Sharks
December 19, 2007
Guinness Premiership side Sale Sharks have announced that Lee Thomas has signed a new two year deal with the club.
Lee, 23, joined Sale Sharks before the start of last season and was playing well when a broken arm on New Years Day at Newcastle Falcons halted his progress.
He fought back to full fitness in a matter of weeks and has been a regular in the team ever since.
Lee said, "I am really enjoying my rugby at Sale Sharks and would like to thank Philippe, Kingsley and Jos who have helped me improve my game.
"We have a great squad here at the club and competition for places is intense. I want to do my best for the team and hopefully help us to win some silverware."
Director of Rugby Philippe Saint Andre said, "Lee is a great young player and is important to my squad. He can play centre and number 10 and is a good kicker too. Lee had offers to return to play in Wales but wants to stay with us."
