Richards: Wanted by Sale

Sky Bet

Sale are set to launch an ambitious bid for Wigan Warriors winger Pat Richards.

Man of Steel winner Richards has been working his way back to full fitness after rupturing his Achilles tendon in the Grand Final win over St Helens in October.

The 29-year-old had initially been linked to a temporary cross-code switch to the Sharks, who have seen leading scoring Tom Brady ruled out with a shoulder injury.

However with Wigan keen to keep hold of the Australia-born Ireland international, Sale are ready to offer him the chance to swap codes at the end of the current Super League campaign.

A Sale spokesman told The Sun: "He has everything it takes to be a great union player."
