Bristol’s Mama joins Warriors on loan

Warriors can today confirm the loan signing of Marco Mama from Bristol Rugby.

The powerful forward becomes Dean Ryan's tenth new signing ahead of the 2015/16 season and joins up with his new teammates immediately.

The 24-year-old is no stranger to Warriors, having played in all four of Bristol's fixtures against Ryan's men last season.

The flanker also scored a try at Sixways during a man-of-the-match performance for the Championship XV side that defeated Canada last November.

Mama said: "I'm very excited to have an opportunity to play Premiership Rugby at a Club that clearly has so much ambition.

"The Club has a first-class environment for players to develop, which is vitally important when having ambitions to play at the highest level.

"I believe my skill-set will be well-suited to Warriors and I hope I can make a significant impact.  

"The competition will be strong in the back-row so I'm going to have to be at the top of my game from day one if I'm going to force my way into Dean's plans.  

"But that's the nature of top-flight rugby and I'm excited for the challenge."

The versatile back-row joined the Bristol Academy in 2009 and has gone on to make 107 appearances for the club, racking-up 22 tries.

Warriors Director of Rugby Ryan added: "Marco is a hungry young player who we saw plenty of at Bristol last season.

"His versatility and work-rate across the back-row will add to the competitive nature of our squad.

"We were really impressed with his performances in the Championship and we will work with him to ensure he transfers those skills into the Premiership."
