Sale’s World Cup-winning winger Ben Cohen has said that he could be retiring at the end of the season since he has been told that that he is a plus to the requirements at Sale .

The 32-year-old joined the Sharks from Brive in 2009 on a two-year contract.

“Sale don’t want me anymore because they’re trying to spend more money in the pack,” said Cohen.

“I’ve got another couple of years left in me so I’ll try to get a club in the Premiership. If not, I’ll retire. So we’ll just have to see what happens.”
