YET another former Worcester Warriors Academy product has signed a contract extension at the club.

Second-row Justin Clegg becomes the latest to sign up for next season after agreeing to a new one year deal at Sixways.

The 25-year-old has become a regular in the first-team squad in the last two seasons and gained his 50th cap in the game with Newcastle Falcons last month.

Worcester News:

"I am very happy to be staying with Warriors," Clegg said.

"The last two seasons have been good for me personally, especially getting to 50 appearances this season.

"I’m excited to be a part of the Warriors next season and look forward to working with Steve Diamond and Nick Easter.

"To be part of the squad that won the Premiership Rugby Cup was very special. Not playing in the final didn’t matter, it was just as significant for us on the sidelines as it was for the boys who played.

"To have been on that journey is something that I will treasure. There were some big games – winning against Bath and beating Gloucester here were great memories.

"It was great to see the club get some silverware but I was also sad that Cecil Duckworth wasn’t here to see it because that was one of his big goals for the club."

Soon to be director of rugby, Steve Diamond, added: "Cleggy has all the ingredients to be a top-class lock. He’s athletic and he’s a big man, the job is to make him into a Premiership animal.

"Warriors have a reputation for developing excellent young players and it’s great to see good homegrown players like Cleggy staying with us."
