Premiership Rugby side Sale Sharks have today (March 17, 2020) officially announced a three year contract extension with kit partners Samurai Sports that will see the latter provide shirts and uniforms to the club till the end of the 2022/23 season.

Samurai have now signed a three year contract to replace Kukri beginning July 1, 2020. The deal will be for the 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons.
