WORCESTER Warriors' Mefin Davies has signed a new two-year contract as the club’s scrum and assistant forwards coach.

The 45-year-old joined the Warriors coaching set-up in the summer of 2014 to assist the academy forwards.

He later became part of the first-team coaching set-up and has helped to nurture the likes of Nick Schonert, Jack Singleton and Gareth Milasinovich at Sixways.

As a player, Davies had spells with Gloucester and Leicester Tigers before moving to Welsh region Ospreys in 2010.

He won 38 caps for Wales and made three appearances at the 2003 Rugby World Cup before helping his country to the Six Nations Grand Slam in 2005.

Davies said: “I am hugely grateful for the opportunity Warriors gave me when I first moved into coaching and I am over the moon to sign a new contract.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the plethora of talented players we have at this club and I am immensely excited about what the future holds.”

Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons said: “Mefin is one of the very best scrum coaches around. He has had a significant impact on this group of players and I am delighted he has signed a new deal.”
