An absolute wrecking ball of a loose-head, Sheridan is one of the strongest players in the game and was man-of-the match after his demolition of Australia's front-row.
The softly spoken Sale battler has developed into one of the most fearsome props in the game both in the scrum and with ball in hand. South Africa will not be looking forward to meeting the man they call "Big Ted".
Sheridan has a Level 2 NVQ in bricklaying and also plays guitar, favouring country and folk.
