Palmer: We’re working hard to improve Warriors squad
WARRIORS rugby operations director Corin Palmer has reassured Worcester fans the club are scouring the globe to attract top players to Sixways.
Despite a number of the club’s out-of-contract stars opting to pursue their ambitions elsewhere, Palmer is convinced the players being recruited will enhance Warriors’ squad.
Worcester announced the capture of Argentinian international back-rower Leonardo Senatore on Wednesday and Stade Francais’ Australian fly-half Paul Warwick yesterday and Palmer revealed more big names are set to follow.
He said: “It is an exciting time to be connected with Warriors. Players who are out of contract at the end of this season at Sixways can clearly see the calibre of signings we are now making.
“We also have players of international quality, both home and abroad, excited about Warriors and wanting to be a part of it.
“We are working very hard behind the scenes and the squad is starting to take shape for next season.
“We look forward to now making more positive announcements in the coming weeks.”
Senatore, 28, who featured in the 2011 Rugby World Cup, has made 17 Test appearances for his country, scoring two tries, and most recently featured against Ireland at Lansdowne Road in November.
The imposing back-rower, who was part of the Argentina team that played Warriors in the 2011 pre-season friendly,said: “I am very pleased about this fantastic opportunity to play in England with Warriors. I believe my game will suit the Aviva Premiership and therefore I am excited to become a Warrior and test myself in such an environment.
“The club has spoken to me about its major plans for the future and I am aware of the quality of the stadium and facilities.”
