Solomona signed for Sale in 2016 and has since made 26 Premiership appearances for the club, scoring 17 tries in the process. The 24-year-old also won two caps for England during last year’s tour of Argentina.

“I’m really pleased to have signed an extended contract with Sale, there couldn’t be a better environment for me to play my rugby,” Solomona told the club’s website. (www.salesharks.com)
