Warriors have pulled off a major coup by signing Scotland and British and Irish Lions loosehead prop Rory Sutherland.
Sutherland, one of the leading looseheads in Europe, will arrive at Sixways from Edinburgh Rugby and will link up with Warriors at the end of the Lions’ tour of South Africa.
His signing means that Warriors now have two players on the tour – Sutherland’s Scotland and Edinburgh team-mate, wing Duhan van der Merwe, was another high profile capture earlier this year – the club’s biggest-ever Lions’ representation.
Sutherland’s move to Sixways will also reunite him with Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons who signed him for Edinburgh from Scottish Premiership club Gala in 2015.
Sutherland, 28, was born and raised in the Borders and played for Hawick and Biggar before Gala. He started out as a back-row forward in age group rugby but made the successful switch to the front row at senior level.
