Sale Sharks have completed the signing of New Zealand centre Sam Tuitupou on a two-year contract from Munster.

The 29-year-old began his career at Auckland Blues and moved to England in 2007 with Worcester, where he scored 13 tries in 54 appearances.

He joined Magners League side Munster last summer on a one-year deal.

Executive director of rugby Steve Diamond said: "He has a great work rate and will boost our back line in both attack and defence."

He added: "The experience that he has gained from playing in some great teams throughout his career will benefit our squad tremendously next season."
