Loan men hope to impress away from Worcester Warriors
WARRIORS duo Ollie Frost and James Currie are hoping to make the most of their loan switch to Championship side Leeds.
Scrum-half Frost, 25, and 22-year-old prop Currie have joined the Headingley side for the rest of the season as part of Worcester head coach Richard Hill’s plan to get meaningful matches for his fringe players.
Former England under 18 international Frost has graduated through the Sixways academy and made 37 appearances for the club over the past three seasons, while Currie played for the Bath academy until 2010 when he went on to play for Cornish Pirates.
His performances for the Championship side brought him to the attention of Worcester, who signed the youngster last season.
Frost said: “I have been really impressed with the Leeds club since I arrived, we had our first training on Wednesday and James and I were thrown in at the deep end with a tough session.
“The move to Leeds is really positive for me and hopefully I will be able to get more game time and it will be a fresh start.
“It is a young squad and I know Rory Clegg and Jacob Rowan from playing for England Under 18s so it has been easy to fit in.
“I have played in the Championship with Worcester and on loan at Coventry, so I am looking forward to the competition again and hopefully I will be selected this weekend and get to play against some ex-Worcester boys like Alex Crockett and Oliver Tomaszczyk in the Newcastle side.”
Currie added: “I am really pleased to have signed for Leeds. I have played in the Championship before with Cornish Pirates so I know how tough the competition is.”
