Sale Sharks Front Row Forward Jack Forster has suffered a relapse in his attempt to recover from his chronic neck injury.

Executive Director of Sport Steve Diamond said, “This setback comes after Jack has worked so hard to regain full fitness. He is a very popular member of the squad and we are going to continue to help Jack with his rehabilitation in an effort to help him overcome this injury. Jack will be staying involved with the club and we will be monitoring his progress regularly. We have not set a time limit on Jack’s return, but he is a young and very committed professional and is very keen on wanting to play for us again in the future.”
