Worcester Warriors are delighted to announce that exciting young centre Greg King has signed a new two-year deal at the club.
Warriors Academy graduate King, who scored his first senior try for the club against Olympus Rugby XV Madrid last weekend, has put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at the club until at least 2012.
The powerful 21-year-old centre made his Guinness Premiership debut for Warriors in April 2009 when he faced Harlequins at The Stoop.
King, who has represented England at Under 18, Under 19 and Under 20 level, was also named in the Worcester line-up on the opening day at the current season and impressed with an all-action display and his part in the opening try of the game for Miles Benjamin.
Director of Rugby Mike Ruddock said: "It's great news that Greg has signed up for two more years at the club.
"He is a hard working and hard running centre with a huge amount of potential to develop into a very strong candidate for a starting berth at the club over a longer period.
"Greg showed his maturity in the first game of the season against Northampton Saints when he performed admirably and underlined his potential that day with a very solid display."
Premiership Rugby today announced an extension of their partnership with the UK's largest insurance company, Aviva, for a further three years. The contract extension, which starts in the 2014-15 season, will cover a golden era for club rugby in England and will include a period when the country will host a Rugby World Cup and when rugby union will finally rejoin the Olympic movement.
Not only are the great and the good of the Aviva Premiership Rugby strutting their stuff at Twickenham this Saturday - so are the new generation of rugby players, including Worcester RFC, courtesy of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.
Warrior Stuart Brooks will represent the club at Twickenham next weekend as he battles for the honour of carrying the coveted Aviva Premiership Rugby trophy onto the pitch ahead of the final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints.
