Callum Black to return to Worcester Warriors
Worcester Warriors are delighted to confirm that former loosehead prop Callum Black will be returning to the club in the summer.
The 31-year-old has signed a two-year deal and will provide vital experience to the front row as Director of Rugby Alan Solomons assembles his squad ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
Black, who came through the Warriors Academy after joining in 2005, went on to make 51 appearances for the Club, helping them back to the Premiership in 2011 before making the switch to Ulster Rugby, where he has been ever since.
During his time in Northern Ireland, Black has made 141 appearances which has seen the prop reach the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup in 2013 and 2014, and the final in 2012.
He was also part of a side which made it to the semi-finals of the then Pro 12 in four successive seasons from 2013 to 2016, losing out in the final of 2013.
Born in Washington DC, USA, Black also played representative rugby for Ireland at Under 18, 19 and 21 level.
Black said: “I’m very excited to be returning to where it all started for me back at Worcester.
“The facilities at Sixways have certainly changed a great deal since I was last at the Club and I’m genuinely looking forward to coming back to England.
“I want to help Warriors try and make strides up the Premiership and hopefully my experience can add to a promising young pack.”
Director of Rugby Solomons added: “Callum is a tremendous scrummager and a seasoned professional, having earned a wealth of experience in the Pro 14 and Champions Cup.
“That experience will be of great benefit to our pack in the coming seasons.”
