Report: Jonny Hill expected to exit Manchester at the end of the season

Sale Sharks lock Jonny Hill is expected to part ways with the club at the end of the season as interest arrives from abroad. Despite only arriving at the Manchester-based club in 2022, it appears that Hill will be joining many of his former England teammates over the English channel.

The interest comes from struggling French outfit Lyon, who are reportedly looking to bolster their pack as French international Romain Taofifenua finds himself heading north to Paris in the form of Racing 92.

A report from French rugby publication ‘Rugbyrama’, states: “According to information published this Sunday in Le Progres and which we are able to confirm, Sale’s English international second row Jonny Hill (2.02m, 122kg) should sign for next season with Lyon.”

This move would likely signal the end of Hill’s England career, as under current national rules players cannot play for their country if they are not playing for a domestic side.

The report continued: “His arrival would allow Lyon to acquire an experienced player with a strong tonnage to replace the French international Romain Taofifenua, who is leaving for Racing. In addition in the second row, Lyon are looking hard to fill the upcoming departure of Joel Kpoku, who will join Pau at the end of the season.”
