Premiership - Trio pen Sale deals
Wales international Dwayne Peel has signed a new two-year contract with Aviva Premiership club Sale Sharks.
And Sale have also announced fresh deals for Peel's fellow Welshmen Nick Macleod and Marc Jones.
Scrum-half Peel, who has won 76 caps, is currently our of favour with Wales.
He missed out on last autumn's World Cup, slipping down coach Warren Gatland's pecking order behind the likes of Mike Phillips, Lloyd Williams, Rhys Webb and Tavis Knoyle.
But the 30-year-old British and Irish Lion remains an integral part of Sale's plans, having joined them from the Scarlets in 2008.
"I am delighted to extend my contract," Peel said. "I am having a good time here. Exciting times lie ahead, and I will be glad to be part of it."
Macleod also moved to Sale in 2008, making the number 10 shirt his own this season and he has already amassed more than 230 points. Like Peel, he has agreed terms for two years.
And front-row forward Jones, 24, has added a further year to his contract at Edgeley Park.
Sale chief executive Steve Diamond said: "When I came back to Sale 12 months ago, I didn't know Dwayne, Nick or Marc.
"I soon got to know them, and they are all awesome players who fit into the squad fantastically well. I am really glad they've agreed to extend."
