Worcester land Tuitupou

Worcester Warriors have completed the signing of New Zealand international Sam Tuitupou.

The highly-rated 25-year-old, who has won nine international caps for the All Blacks, has signed a deal at Sixways that will keep him at the club until 2010.

He will arrive at Sixways at the start of November following the completion of the Rugby World Cup and NPC season.

Worcester’s Director of Rugby John Brain stressed the importance of such a high caliber signing.

“This is clearly an important signing for Worcester. In Sam we have not just signed an explosive ‘go forward’ player, but one who at a comparatively young age can offer us a wealth of experience playing at the very top level. It’s very exciting news for the club,” Brain said.

Meanwhile Tuitupou spoke of his excitement at the new challenge that lies ahead.

“After giving very careful consideration to my future I have decided to join with Worcester Rugby Club at the conclusion of the Air New Zealand Cup in October,” he said.

“I am excited by the prospect for both me and my family and look forward living in Worcester and becoming part of the Worcester Rugby family as well.”
