Three Worcester players sign permanently with Bath, one set to leave

Three of Bath’s four arrivals from Worcester Warriors on short-term deals are set to make their move to the Rec permanent.

Ollie Lawrence, Valery Morozov and Fergus Lee-Warner have all signed deals to keep them at the Rec until at least the end of the 2022/23 season, SomersetLive has reported this morning.

However, former Worcester club captain and England international Hill is still understood to be leaving the door open for to explore other opportunities with both Bristol Bears and Exeter Chiefs reportedly keen on his services.

RUCK sources suggest Hill would favour a move to Sandy Park. The flanker currently has three weeks left on his four week contract with the black, blue and whites.



#1. Rory Sutherland to Ulster

Ulster have signed Scotland and British and Irish Lions prop Rory Sutherland on a short-term deal.

He has made 20 appearances for his country, and won a Lions Test cap against South Africa last year.

#2. Duhan van der Merwe to Edinburgh

The Scottish club have announced the British & Irish Lions and Scotland star winger Duhan van der Merwe is coming back to the capital on a long-term deal, subject to visa, medical and regulatory clearances.

The 6ft 4in, 105kg strike-runner scored 32 tries in 67 appearances for Edinburgh after joining from Montpellier in 2017 – his scintillating form propelling him into the international spotlight after qualifying for Scotland on residency grounds.
