Worcester forward Nick Schonert has signed a new undisclosed-length deal with the Premiership club.
The destructive scrummager has been on the cusp of Test honours for the last two years, having been called up for the 2017 tour of Argentina, only to be denied by injury, before being called up for England’s pre-World Cup training camp.
“I am really happy a lot of the other guys are re-signing too,” he said.
“This is the first time since I’ve been here that a lot of established players are staying. It shows where we’re at.”

“I have been here for six years and I owe a lot to the club. The club has made me into the player I am but I don’t think that over that period we have given the fans what they deserve.
“I would like to look back in 30 years and say that I practised what I preach and that I helped to give the fans a top six club.”
