Denny Solomona provides update after Sale Sharks exit

Denny Solomona has provided an update after he has left rugby union side Sale Sharks.

The former Castleford Tigers and London Broncos winger set Super League alight after he made the move to the Jungle ahead of the 2015 Super League season.

He broke the competition’s single-season try-scoring record with 40 in a remarkable first season with the Tigers in 2016, before leaving at the end of that season in controversial circumstances.

Solomona declared he had ‘retired’ from rugby league in a bid to swap codes and he duly did that, with Sale having to pay a six-figure fee to Castleford in compensation.

The flying winger won five England caps, scoring a debut try against Argentina in 2017, but was due to be out of contract at the end of the season.

In his time with the Sharks, the New Zealand-born flyer scored 47 tries in 98 appearances for Sale during his five years at the club.

“I’d like to thank Denny for his efforts during my time at the club and wish him all the very best for the rest of his career and beyond,” Sale director of rugby Alex Sanderson said.

 It has now been revealed that Solomona will be going back to his native New Zealand.

Solomona posted on social media: “A 5 year chapter in my life has come to a end and what a 5 years it has been. Thank you to the owners and @salesharks for the opportunity 5years ago to come and play for such a awesome club.

“To the Fans I bloody love yas ! You guys have shown me and my family nothing but love and support since the day I got to sale. To the brothers I went to war with on and off the field I have a special place for you guys in my heart I’ve watched you guys grow up to be awesome men some now fathers and some married I love you boys 🖤

“Last but not least these last two years I couldn’t have done it without my partner @hollyunsworth and our little girl you’ve given me reason and I will always do my best to be the best father and partner to you both 🤍

“Much Love Denny.”
