Former Warriors director of rugby Brain passes away

Former Worcester Warriors director of rugby John Brain, died suddenly yesterday aged 50.

Brain, who was operations directors at Gloucester, made nearly 300 appearances for the Cherry and Whites as a player and also worked as assistant coach at Kingsholm under Philippe Saint-Andre before taking charge at Sixways.

Brain guided Worcester into the Premiership and coached the forwards at Bristol before returning to Gloucester in 2010 in a scouting capacity.

Worcester said on their website: “Everyone connected with Warriors is deeply saddened by the news and our thoughts are with his wife and daughters at this difficult time.”
