“Disgrace” – Premiership club slammed for signing Russian player

Experienced Russia international loosehead prop Valeriy Morozov will be reunited with Steve Diamond when he joins Warriors from Bath Rugby for the 2022/23 season.

There were a number of negative and mostly inappropriate comments about the signing, though they evidently came from non rugby fans with little knowledge of the players background.

As a result, most of them have thankfully been deleted.

However, the Russian prop, who has a Ukrainian wife, was a hugely popular player during his time with Bath and Sale Sharks.

One fan wrote: “Good signing for you guys, I rated highly at Sale and never understood why we let him go.”

Another added: “Great guy. Hope he does well.”

“I have known Valeriy from the time I had coaching Russia. He is an exceptional athlete,” said Diamond.

“He is a very humble person with a fantastic work ethic and he will be a superb addition to our squad.”

“I know how Steve works and what he expects from his players,” added Morozov. “I hope I can help Warriors become a top six Premiership club.”
