Worcester ready for battle to keep Latham

Worcester Warriors are trying to keep former Wallaby full-back Chris Latham at Sixways but admit that they may have to work hard to keep him at the club.

Thirty four year old Latham joined the Warriors in 2008 on a two-year contract and has an option to stay for a third year.

Director of rugby Mike Ruddock told BBC Hereford and Worcester: “There are a lot of things to be talked about before we know if he will stay on.

“Chris is enjoying his rugby at Worcester and we hope he will stay.”

Latham is a veteran international for Australia having played in 78 tests and was rated Worcester’s biggest ever signing.

Things have not gone well this season for the Warriors who are currently placed 11th in the table but Latham has been a stand out player.

“He is a fantastic player, and there will be talk about his future and a lot of other players,” Ruddock added.

“It’s not just about Chris, it’s about his family as well and how they have settled in.

“It’s that time of year when everyone is starting to look around.”
