Sale Sharks have signed Leeds scrum-half Scott Mathie.

The 28-year-old South African, who made 22 appearances for Leeds this season, is the 16th player to join the Sharks for next term.

He follows Kearnan Myall and Luther Burrell in making the move from Headingley to Edgeley Park.

Sale executive director of sport Steve Diamond said: "Scott is another significant signing as we build a squad ready for the challenges ahead."

Mathie, who has previously had spells with Natal Sharks and Blue Bulls, impressed Diamond when Leeds met Sale earlier this season.

"I was impressed with his display against us when Leeds played at Edgeley Park in March and I am sure he will be battling for a place in the team next season," added Diamond.

Mathie spent three years at Leeds, helping them win promotion from National League One in his first season in Yorkshire.
