I need to learn rugby union - Deacon

Sale Sharks new attack and skills coach Paul Deacon tells BBC Radio Manchester that he will need to learn about rugby union after his move from Super League side Wigan Warriors.

The 36-year-old former Great Britain scrum-half will take up his first position at the rugby union club having spent his whole career playing and coaching in rugby league.

Deacon, who played for Oldham, Bradford and his hometown club Wigan, helped coach England in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
