Warriors bolstered the club’s second row resources with the major signing of former England international lock Chris Jones from Sale Sharks in 2011.
Highly-rated Jones, who has won 14 international caps for England, joined the Warriors on a three-year deal after over a decade of dedicated service at Sale Sharks.
His experience has proven invaluable since arriving at Sixways and in his first two seasons at the club he played 49 games.
Jones made his 200th Premiership appearances in April 2013 as he started Warriors' penultimate away games of the season at Saracens. In fact only 16 players have made more top-flight appearances than Jones.
The athletic second row, who can play lock or back row, played over 200 games for Sale with his outstanding line-out jumping making him a constant threat to other teams, while a series of long range tries has underlined his pace and skills.
Manchester-born Jones has played for England Sevens and was part of the England A team that beat France A, Scotland A and Italy A in the 2003 Six Nations and also went on the unbeaten England tour to North America and Japan that year.
Jones first played for England in the uncapped match against the Barbarians at Twickenham in May 2003 before being called up by Clive Woodward for the senior team ahead of the 2004 Six Nations. He came off the bench against Italy for his debut and marked his appearance with a try
He was selected for England’s 2004 summer tour, starting against the All Blacks in Dunedin in the first Test. Jones went on to collect more caps on the 2006 tour of Australia and 2007 tour of South Africa.
