ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Sale Sharks head coach Mike Brewer said, "This is a massive signing for the club. Mikaele is incredibly quick and has wanted to play in the Premiership. He had the choice of joining other clubs in the UK but he has chosen Sale Sharks and I am sure our supporters will be very impressed with him."
Sale will take on Brive, Petrarca Rugby and Cetransa El Salvador in Pool 2 of next season's Amlin Challenge Cup
