RYAN Lamb says he is ‘excited’ by the journey ahead for Worcester Warriors, after his move to Sixways was confirmed.

As revealed in your Worcester News last Thursday, Lamb has quit Leicester Tigers to link up with his former boss at Gloucester, Dean Ryan.

Lamb, 27, said: “I’ve really enjoyed my time at Leicester but a lack of game time meant that when the opportunity to join Worcester came up, I didn’t want to pass it by.

“I’ve obviously worked with Dean before at Gloucester and after finding out what he’s building at Worcester, I was excited and wanted to be part of that journey and part of that new culture.”

Warriors director of rugby Ryan added: “I am looking forward to renewing my relationship with Ryan.

“When the chance to bring him here came up, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity.”
