Worcester Warriors sign English-qualified powerhouse lock from Australia

Worcester Warriors have made lock/back-row forward Fergus Lee-Warner their third signing for the 2022/23 season on a three-year contract.

Lee-Warner, 28, will arrive at Sixways from Perth-based Western Force at the end of the forthcoming Super Rugby Pacific season. Lee-Warner has also played for Western Force in Australia’s National Rugby Championship having previously represented the Greater Sydney Rams.

Lee-Warner, who is 6ft 4ins tall and weights 17-and-a-half stone, is English-qualified through a grandfather.

β€œI am really excited about joining Warriors,” Lee-Warner said.

β€œI have been playing Super Rugby here in Perth since 2020 when Force came back in.

β€œI have really enjoyed my time here with Force but I have always wanted to play in the Gallagher Premiership. I feel like it’s a really good competition and another step in my career that I want to take.

β€œIt’s the chance for me to experience something different.”
