Sale Sharks boss Mike Brewer has moved to strengthen his side's pack with the signing of lock Nick Rouse from Nottingham.
The 29-year-old, who was named in the Championship's team of the season for 2009-10, impressed the new Sale head coach Brewer (pictured) during a pre-season trial spell.
"The signing of Nick increases my options in the second row," Brewer said.
"He has been training with us for a few weeks and has done very well. He is a very good lineout player in both attack and defence and is also a very busy player in the loose."
