Flanker Curry is among the most highly-rated prospects in English rugby.

Sale Sharks flanker Ben Curry has signed a contract extension with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Sale announced that the 20-year-old's deal will keep him with the Sharks until 2023.

Curry, who is the twin brother of England international flanker Tom Curry, toured Argentina with the senior England squad in 2017.

He made his Sale debut in November 2016 and captained England Under-20s at the Junior World Cup in France earlier this year, reaching the final.

Curry said: "We have a great group of lads here and there is a very positive environment at the club.

"We are making good signings and I am excited to be part of the future at Sale Sharks."

Sale rugby director Steve Diamond, meanwhile, says he believes Curry will go on to emulate his brother by becoming a fully-fledged England international.

"Ben is a fantastic player and I have no doubt he will continue to get even better and fulfil his ambition of becoming an England international," Diamond said.

"He is a brilliant product of our academy and at 20 years of age is a member of our senior player group."
