WORCESTER Warriors loosehead prop George Porter will be joining newly-promoted Greene King IPA Championship outfit Ealing Trailfinders next season.

The 25-year-old Porter arrived at Sixways from Plymouth Albion in 2011 and made 34 first team appearances for Warriors, scoring one try.

Porter, who hails from Gloucester had a successful loan spell at Nottingham this term, making just one Championship appearance for Warriors against Doncaster Knights in January.

Porter is viewed as an important figure for Ealing director of coaching Ben Ward who will be aiming to establish his side in the second tier of English rugby.

The West London outfit are returning to the Championship for only the second time in their history after they won the National One title with 136 points, nine ahead of their nearest rivals Rosslyn Park.

“I'm excited about joining Ealing Trailfinders,” said Porter.

“I was very impressed with the facilities and the coaching team.

“I'm looking forward to being part of the club's ambitions and helping them continue their journey up the leagues.”

Porter spent two seasons at Plymouth and was rated as one of the brightest young talents in the Championship when he linked up with Warriors.

Ward said: “We know from our time previously in the Championship that you need a strong pack to be able to play the type of rugby we like to play.

“George will add to what we already have and he will fit in well with our style of rugby around the park especially with his ball carrying."

Meanwhile, Warriors' Richard de Carpentier has helped England Sevens to third place at the weekend's Glasgow leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

De Carpentier, who played for Warriors in their British and Irish Cup triumph at Doncaster in April, got on the scoresheet as Simon Amor's England side thumped Russia.

England fought out a tight contest with Australia and defeated France before seeing-off Canada in the Cup quarter-finals.

However, England were edged 5-0 by New Zealand in the semi-finals but made amends to win the plate final against USA and securing third-place in the competition.

England are fourth in the World Series standings behind New Zealand, South Africa and leaders Fiji.
