Scottish star Alex Grove has been one of the key performers at Worcester Warriors over the last few seasons and became a club centurion in December 2012.
A product of the Warriors Academy system, the former Rugby School pupil represented Scotland at Under 18s, 19s and 20s before his big breakthrough onto the international stage.
The strong running centre scored four tries for the first-team during the 2008/09 season, including a memorable interception effort against then-champions London Wasps.
He went on to receive a summer call-up to the Scotland A squad as they lifted the iRB Nations Cup in Romania in 2009 before gaining his first call-up to the full Scotland squad for the November internationals later that year.
He started the games with Fiji and Australia and also featured against Argentina. His qualification for Scotland is through his grandfather Ron Wylie, the former Aston Villa and Birmingham City footballer who also managed West Bromwich Albion.
The hard working back made 22 appearances for Warriors during the 2009/10 campaign and scored seven tries – four of them coming in successive games at the end of the season.
Grove’s impressive rise to rugby fame continued in May 2010 when he was named in the Scotland squad to tour Argentina during the summer.
Following a successful loan spell at Edinburgh Rugby, Grove returned to Sixways at the start of 2011 and, after clocking up his 50th appearance for Warriors, helped the club achieve its promotion aspirations back to the Aviva Premiership.
Grove been a regular at centre during the last two seasons and has played more matches than any other Warriors player since the club returned to the Aviva Premiership.
