    Sale Sharks are set to announce the appointment of former New Zealand All Blacks forward Mike Brewer to their coaching staff.

    It is understood 45-year-old Brewer will take up the role of Head Coach, working with current Rugby Director Kingsley Jones.

    And that will raise questions about the future of England World Cup winner Jason Robinson, who has held a prominent coaching role at Sale this season.

    The Sharks' Guinness Premiership future is secure for another season after Worcester were doomed to relegation following a 12-10 defeat against Leeds Carnegie last Sunday.

    But they are currently eleventh with just one game remaining, far cry from just four years ago when Sale were crowned Premiership champions.

    Brewer, a former Scotland forwards coach during Frank Hadden's reign, won 32 caps for New Zealand and played in the 1995 World Cup final against South Africa in Johannesburg when the All Blacks lost 15-12.

    He was also part of the New Zealand team that crushed semi-final opponents England in Cape Town six days earlier, a game remembered for wing Jonah Lomu's four-try demolition job.

    Wonder if Robinson will be the backs coach.

    This should be a good signing/appointment/hiring/whatever, our forwards aren't too bad they just only play about 15minutes per game, will be interesting to see if he can get them working more/improve the scrum.

    Either way, i hope that they stop kicking away posession so much next season, that's cost us a few games this season, Sale have got a decent set of backs, but everytime the ball got anywhere near them it was just hoofed down field



    EDIT:
    Just read that Robinson is leaving Sale completely to be a farmer/do charity rugby related stuff,
    Also, Kingsley Jones is now going to be in charge of strategys for the game, squad selection, the academy and marketing

    Next season could be interesting...
