Winger Mark Cueto has been given the Sale Sharks captaincy recently. England international Cueto, 31, takes over from James Gaskell, who has been sidelined for two months with an ankle ligament injury.

“The leadership skills of Mark will be vital to us,” said Anglesea, who took over as coach last week following Mike Brewer’s sacking.

“We are looking to Mark to lead the club forward with heart and passion.”
