Neil Best

Ireland international back row forward Neil Best moved to Worcester Warriors in 2010 from Northampton Saints and quickly established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet with his all-action attitude and hunger for the game.

Belfast born Best - who has made 18 appearances for his country - agreed a two-year deal, with an exclusive option of a third year, and wasted no time in making his mark. Best made 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice against Doncaster Knights.

A tough-tackling and uncompromising flanker, Best adds considerable experience to the Warriors squad with his haul of Ireland senior caps and over 100 appearances for Ulster.

The back row started his rugby career with home-town club Malone and made a massive impact on the world stage when he was named man-of-the-match in Ireland's win over Australia at Lansdowne Road in November 2006.

Best, who also played for Ireland A in the 2008 Churchill Cup, joined Northampton at the start of the 2008/09 season and become a firm favourite with the Saints before his move across the Midlands to join Warriors saw him become a cult hero with Sixways supporters.
