Wales international Lisa Neumann signs for Premier 15s side Sale Sharks

Wales international Lisa Neumann has signed for Premier 15s side Sale Sharks, yet another from ousted club Firwood Waterloo.

Neumann joins seven other players from Waterloo who have made the move away after the club were kicked out of the top flight after a re-tendering process in April.

The 26 year-old has 15 caps for Wales and said she’s excited to join Sharks.

She said: “It is such a great opportunity to play top level rugby and continue to develop my game in an elite performance setting. I can’t wait to get started and challenge for a place in the starting team.”

And Darren Lamon, Head of Women’s Rugby at Sale Sharks, said: “It is superb to be able to announce another high-quality addition to our squad in Lisa.

“She is someone who has natural pace, a physical presence in defence and exactly what we need to support the wingers we have here already. Lisa came to the attention of both Katy [Daley-Mclean] and I when watching action from this year’s Six Nations Championship.  

"Lisa is determined to keep her spot in the Welsh team and we look forward to giving Lisa all the resources we can to continue to develop her game.”
