Sale eyes Mitchell comeback
Experienced coach John Mitchell has been linked with a return to Sale as the Sharks search for their first win of the season.
The former England assistant coach could make a comeback to fill the void left by Steve Scott, who was relieved of his position as the club's forward coach last month.
With no wins in their first six games of the Aviva Premiership season, head coach Bryan Redpath has found life difficult at the Salford City Stadium and Mitchell is being linked with a role on the management team to help the Scot.
The 48-year-old has enjoyed plenty of experience in Super Rugby in the southern hemisphere with the likes of Western Force and the Golden Lions, and would add plenty of knowledge to the staff at Sale.
Sale are in action in the Heineken Cup next Sunday when they face Cardiff Blues, as they hope to put an end to their disappointing losing streak.
