"Meanwhile Sale Sharks director of rugby Steve Diamond and operations manager Paul Smith met with Carnegie officials last week to discuss ideas that might be of mutual benefit.
Diamond is keen to grow the Sharks brand across the North and one of the plans is to hold a select number of games at the recently renovated Headingley Stadium, Carnegie’s home ground.
Diamond is also keen to have an interchangeable player pathway between the clubs which would give academy players on both sides of the Pennines much-needed competitive game time.
Carnegie would be able to tap into a Sale Sharks player and coaching pool as they look to hastily assemble a squad and coaching team from scratch in time for the start of the 2019/2020 season, away to Nottingham in the Championship Cup on the weekend of September 20/21/22."
