Daniel Braid: Will skipper Sale for the new season
Sale Sharks have appointed flanker Daniel Braid as their team captain for the new season.
The former New Zealand international joined the Sharks on New Year's Day and became a first-team regular as the club successfully avoided relegation from the Aviva Premiership.
Braid, who made six appearances for the All Blacks, played 12 games and scored three tries, including crucial scores in the victories over Exeter and London Welsh.
Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said: "Dan is a not only a great player, he is a natural leader and is very popular amongst the squad we have assembled at Sale Sharks for the coming season."
