WORCESTER Warriors have made Hartpury RFC winger Jack Johnson their 12th new signing ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Johnson, 22, will arrive at Sixways from the Greene King IPA Championship club having also represented them in their British Universities and Colleges Sport Championship-winning campaigns between 2017 and 2019.

He will be the third winger signed up for next season, joining Welshman Harri Doel and Scottish international Duhan van der Merwe.

Worcester already have Tom Howe, Perry Humphreys, Noah Heward, Alex Hearle and Chris Ashton within the squad.

Head coach Jonathan Thomas explained why he had been brought in.

“We are pleased that we are bringing Jack into our programme,” he said.

“When we look at recruitment we are looking at people that we feel can add value and grow within our environment.

“Jack is someone that we have been impressed with by both watching him play and also on footage.

“Having spoken to him we feel that he is someone with the right attitude and mindset to really thrive in our environment.

“We are excited to give him the opportunity to develop his potential.”

Johnson, who is 6ft 4ins tall, was a member of Harlequins EPDG while he was at Cranleigh School and was capped by England Students in 2019, which indicates his potential.

He said that the project at Warriors was something he was "excited" to be a part of.

“It’s a proud moment for me and my family and I’m looking forward to the season ahead and showing everyone what I’m about,” Johnson said.

“I’m excited to be a part of the vision of Alan Solomons and Jonathan Thomas for the future at Worcester Warriors."

“Everyone has been very welcoming and there’s a good, friendly atmosphere.”
