Larder extends defence contract with Worcester

Aviva Premiership rugby club Worcester Warriors have announced a new contract for their defence coach Phil Larder who was formerly the British and Irish Lions defence coach.

Larder, part of England’s coaching staff during the World Cup-winning campaign in 2003, rejoined the Warriors this season after a spell at Sixways five years previously.

“I have been absolutely delighted by the strides we have made under Phil’s guidance and the work he has done,” Worcester head coach Richard Hill said.

“He has been a huge contributing factor to being where we are in the league at the current time.

“Phil had immediate respect within the squad. He is renowned in the United Kingdom as one of the best defence coaches around.

“His hunger for the game is as strong as ever, and he demands the highest standards and work ethic from the squad to make them even better.”

The club are third from bottom of the 12-team Premiership table with 35 points after 19 matches.
