Scott shown door by Sharks
Sale Sharks have announced the sacking of forwards coach Steve Scott with immediate effect after their poor start to the season.
Scott's departure comes just four games into the Aviva Premiership campaign, with the Sharks sitting bottom after only picking up one point and without a win. It is understood that the club's chief executive Steve Diamond will join rugby director Bryan Redpath in preparing the squad until a replacement is appointed. Sale expected to make a strong start to the new term after bringing in former England fly-half Danny Cipriani and current Scotland second-row star Richie Gray. Diamond said: "Our results have been poor so far and we decided that we needed to change the coaching structure within the club. "We have started the process of finding a replacement to coach the forwards. "While that process takes place I will be assisting Bryan Redpath prepare the players for the foreseeable future. "I would like to place on record my thanks to Steve Scott, who has worked hard in his role and always given 100 per cent. I wish him all the best in the future." Scott has been part of the coaching staff at the club since December 2010 and has a wealth of experience from his playing days, winning 10 caps for Scotland.
