England fly-half extends his stay with the Sharks.
Danny Cipriani has signed a new two-year contract with Premiership outfit Sale Sharks.
His contract with the club was due to expire in the summer.
The 27-year-old was an instant hero for England on Saturday in the Six Nations, when he came off the bench and scored a try against Italy just moments after his introduction.

Now, Cipriani’s week has got even better, having penned a new club deal.
The former Wasps no.10 has revealed why he has decided to stay with Sale Sharks.
“One of the main reasons I signed was that we’ve got a tight squad and it embraces new talent,” he told BBC Sport.
“We’ve got some great young talent at the club with players like Mike Haley, Will Addison, Tommy Taylor, Ross Harrison and Josh Beaumont all having really come to the fore over the past year or so.”
“It’s also an environment that makes you feel very welcome so I’m really thrilled about signing the new deal and looking forward to the future.”
