Bath lock Spencer to join Worcester Warriors

Will Spencer will leave Bath and join Worcester Warriors

Aviva Premiership Rugby club Worcester Warriors have announced that Bath Rugby lock Will Spencer, who will join the Club ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Twenty-three-year-old Spencer has won 11 caps for Bath and spent part of the 2013/14 season on loan with London Welsh.

The giant forward, who stands at a menacing 6ft 7in, will provide Warriors with further competition in the second row.

Spencer, 23, joined the Bath Academy in 2010 before making the transition to the first-team in 2014, where he has gone on to make 11 appearances.

The Hampshire-born forward also spent a season on loan at London Welsh where he played a part in their 2013/14 Championship-winning campaign.

Warriors Director of Rugby Dean Ryan said: “Will is a hungry young second rower who will add vital competition to the pack.

“Having worked alongside some of the Premiership’s top players, he already has some great experience and we’re looking forward to helping him try to realise his potential here at Sixways.”

Spencer added: “From speaking to Dean Ryan and former colleague Tom Heathcote, Worcester feels like the right place for me to further my career over the next few seasons.

“There is a great young squad at the Club and hopefully over time we can achieve our goals and become a top Premiership side.”

Bath Rugby Head Coach, Mike Ford, said: “Will is a promising player, who has been unlucky with injuries at Bath meaning he hasn’t been able to get as much game time as he’d like. Second row is a very competitive position in our squad, and we wish Will all the best at Worcester.”

Meanwhile Bath confirmed that Academy scrum-half Will Homer has been dual-registered with Bristol Rugby, and tighthead prop Kane Palma-Newport has joined London Welsh on loan for the rest of the season.
