Sale Sharks have announced that First Team Coach, Tony Hanks, has left the club with immediate effect and by mutual consent.
Hanks was formerly Director of Rugby at London Wasps and joined Sale Sharks in July 2011 with responsibility for the side's attack, game plan and defence.
Steve Diamond, CEO of Sale Sharks said: " It has been a season of great change at Sale Sharks and I would like to thank Tony for his help in implementing that change. The owners, directors, players and supporters all wish Tony well in the future. In the meantime our work continues."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
