ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Sebastien Chabal signed a two year deal with an additional one. The international back row (37 caps with France) joined Sale in 2004 and won the European Challenge Cup in 2005 with the Sharks. The experienced player has scored 12 tries in both European competitions and has developed into a key for Sale.
Sale coach Philippe St André said: "Sebastien is a great player. He always gives his best. He will play a big part in the future of Sale Sharks and we are all delighted that he has signed a new deal. "
The Sharks are top of Pool 4 with 20 points and will host Petrarca Rugby in Round 5, on Friday, 11 January 2008.
