Sale Sharks Women have announced the signing of Scotland International scrum half Mhairi Grieve ahead of the clubs maiden Tyrrells Premier 15s campaign.
26-year-old Grieve, who has represented Scotland Women 18 times to date, previously played Sevens for her country before transferring to the 15-a-side game. Mhairi, who already has a wealth of experience within the Tyrrells Premier 15s, has plied her trade at Firwood Waterloo Ladies over the past three seasons, previously playing at Edinburgh University and RHS Cougars RFC.
Darren Lamon, Head of Women’s Rugby at Sale Sharks was exceptionally pleased to secure the club’s third International signing ahead of the forthcoming Tyrrells Premier 15s Season. Commenting on today’s announcement, he said: “It’s superb to be able to announce another high-quality addition to our squad in Mhairi. She is an experienced operator at scrum half within the women’s game which is evidenced by her International and Premier 15s pedigree. Mhairi’s style of play was highlighted by both Katy and I from the outset when discussing the type of players we wanted to bring over to Sale and from conversations with her over the past few weeks, we were not disappointed.
Mhairi is exactly the type of player we want at Sale Sharks Women, competitive, hardworking, and skilful with a great knowledge of the game but most importantly, Mhairi wants to challenge herself in the new and exciting high-performance environment. I feel Mhairi will bring real quality to our ranks and make an immediate impact when preseason is up and running. It’s exciting times ahead.”
Also commenting on today’s announcement, Mhairi said: “I’m really excited to be joining Sale Sharks Women. It is a hugely exciting opportunity to be part of a new, ambitious team that is focused on high performance rugby. I can’t wait to get started at Carrington.”
