Mike Haley

28th Jun 1994 1.78m/90kg Fullback

The former Hutton Grammar School pupil is a product of the Sale Academy, he made his professional debut against Saracens in the LV= Cup semi-final, March 2013.

He established himself as Sale's first-choice full-back and received his first England call-up from Eddie Jones in May 2016.

Played twice for England Saxons in 2016 but remains Irish-qualified due to those games having come against South Africa 'A', this appearance did not tie him fully to the RFU.

To further sharpen his skills, Haley committed to Sale Sharks by signing a new three-year deal in July 2016.

One of Haley's main attributes is his deceptive pace and ability to get himself in scoring postions in the wider channels, his distribution can also see him slot in as a second playmaker.

With over 100 appearances for Sale, Haley represented an 'England XV' against Barbarians in a non-capped match in summer, 2017.

In February 2018, Munster announced the signing of Haley on a three-year contract ahead of the start of the 2018/19 season.

Haley, who's from Preston in England, is Irish qualified through his maternal grandmother who hails from Tralee, Co Kerry.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Haley has had 23 European Cup appearances scoring 1 try and 5 points.

In May 2019, Haley was named in Ireland's squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup pre-season.
