The USA will now have four players in the 2010-2011 Guinness Premiership with the news that English club, Sale Sharks have signed USA Eagles scrumhalf, Mike Petri. 25 year old Petri will be in competition with Welsh international scrum-half Dwayne Peel and the English pair of Will Cliff and Chris Leck.
Petri has played 15 tests for the USA, most recently vs Russia in this months Churchill Cup. He made his test debut as a replacement vs South Africa in Montpellier during Rugby World Cup 2007 and his move to Sale Sharks will go a long way to helping him be the USA´s first choice 9 at New Zealand 2011.
