Jaba Bregvadze and Worcester Warriors vow to empty the tank


Jaba Bregvadze insists Worcester Warriors can lay down a marker for next season in their final two games of the Aviva Premiership Rugby season.

The Warriors – in their first season back in the top flight – have impressed and currently sit tenth in the table, guaranteed a place in Aviva Premiership Rugby next season.

Their final two games of the season see them head to Welford Road to take on Leicester Tigers before welcoming Saracens to Sixways on the final weekend of the season.

And the 28-year-old Bregvadze insists now is the time for the Warriors to prove they can challenge higher up the standings next season.

“Everyone knows that winning or losing these last two games does not change anything for us,” said the Georgian international hooker.

“But we want to finish strong, and be playing well for the start of the next season.

“If we do everything well we can get an upset.

“We will give everything in these last two games, really empty the tank so we can go on our holidays with full hearts, happy with our efforts.”

Last weekend gave the Warriors a well-earned break before they head to the East Midlands to take on a Tigers side looking to wrap up a top four spot.

And Bregvadze has called on his troops to prove they can mix it with the very best.

“It was good to have a break last weekend, we definitely needed it to recharge the batteries and move forward into these last two games,” he added.

“Leicester and Saracens are two of the best teams in the Premiership, but we want everybody to know that Worcester can play against these two teams.

“That Worcester can be one of the best teams in the league and these two games are a good chance to show it.”

Mid-season additions reinvigorated a Warriors side that had gone a bit stale after a strong opening to the domestic campaign.

The likes of Francois Hougaard and Dewald Potgieter brought real momentum to the squad and Bregvadze admits this is now a side that should be a match for anyone.

“At the start of the season it was good and morale was good, losing 11 in a row in the middle was tough though,” he added. 

“But we are doing everything we can to continue getting stronger.

“The squad is good, no one can take their place for granted in the team, there are replacements in every position that are just as strong so everyone needs to be at their best.”
