Wales duo Pyrs and Wilkins sign for Sale Sharks

Wales internationals Gwenllian Pyrs and Robyn Wilkins have joined Sale Sharks ahead of the new Premiership Women's Rugby season.

Wilkins departs Exeter Chiefs who she joined last year after the collapse of Worcester Warriors.

The 29-year-old won her 70th international cap in Wales' WXV2 play-off victory against Spain last weekend.

She made her Test debut aged 18 in the 2014 Six Nations against Italy and has played in two Rugby World Cups.

Pyrs re-joins the Sharks after two seasons with Bristol Bears.

The 26-year-old prop has been one of Wales' standout players since turning professional two years ago.

Pyrs has won 36 caps since making her debut against Italy in the 2017 Six Nations.
