Giant prop Tevita Taumoepeau - a huge cult hero with fans at Warriors who know him simply as Dave - has become a rock in the Worcester scrum since joining the club in 2005 from French outfit Bourgoin.
The tighthead juggernaut made his debut in Worcester colours against former club Northampton Saints in the Powergen Cup and has since gone on to make over 150 appearance for Warriors, scoring one try in the league in 2006/07.
The Tongan international, who has played 29 times for his country, is regarded as one of the best signings at Warriors in recent times as he has gone on to dominant front row battles in both the Premiership and RFU Championship.
Taumoepeau, who has previously played for Chiefs and Blues, underlined his importance when he was named Players' Player of the Year in 2007/08.
The durable front row made his 150th appearance for Warriors against Nottingham in 2011 and also signed a new deal to keep packing down for the club in the top-flight.
