Worcester Warriors Academy star Josh Adams signs first-team deal

Warriors have further indicated their commitment to developing young talent at Sixways with Academy winger Josh Adams signing a first-team deal.

The 21-year-old joined the Academy from Llanelli Scarlets in the summer of 2015, and impressed for Worcester Cavaliers while also enjoying stints at Cinderford RFC and Nottingham Rugby.

The pacey winger was handed his Warriors debut in September after coming off the bench against Bath Rugby in the Aviva Premiership, and has gone on to make six appearances, which included his maiden try for the Club in Russia against Enisei-STM.

Adams also starred in the 2015 World Rugby Under 20 Championship as he bagged four tries in five games for Wales.

Head Coach Carl Hogg said: “We’re delighted that Josh has committed his future to the Club after really putting his hand up in the early stages of this season.

“We have been resourceful in our recruitment strategy by identifying young players from elsewhere so they can utilise the infrastructure at Sixways to excel as a player.

“The likes of Nick Schonert, Dean Hammond and Perry Humphreys have done that in recent seasons and Josh is another fine example of a player who has travelled down this route.

“He has certainly taken his game to the next level after having broken into the first-team and we look forward to working with him over the coming seasons.”

Adams said: “It’s been an unexpected start to the season but it’s been amazing to get my first taste of Premiership rugby.

“Worcester is certainly a place I feel that, as a young player, I have everything I need to push on and be the best I can be.”
