Dynamic back row forward Jake Abbott has cemented a place in the senior squad at Sixways Stadium and the flanker is now established as one of the most exciting talents at the club.
Worcester born and bred, Abbott has been connected to the club since the age of six as a mini/junior and has worked his way through the entire system to become a first team star.
The home-grown ace first broke into the team at Warriors in October 2008 when he started the EDF Energy Cup game with London Irish. Less than a month later he scored his first senior try in the same competition against Harlequins.
Abbott continued to come of age during the 2009/10 season and the former Worcester Sixth Form College student made seven appearances and scored three tries, including a memorable double against Olympus Rugby Madrid XV.
The athletic and skillful back row, who has been a key member of the England Sevens set-up, cemented his place in the team at the start of the 2010/11 Championship-winning season and scored tries against Birmingham & Solihull, Esher Rugby and Moseley Rugby before injury ruled him out for six months.
Abbott returned to play a key role as Warriors won promotion back to the Aviva Premiership and was rewarded for his development and outstanding development with a new two-year deal in 2011.
His career continued to take an upturn in May 2012 when he signed a new contract extension after impressing in his first year back in the English elite.
Abbott missed the first part of the 2012/13 season through injury but returned to make his 50th appearance for the club against Bizkaia Gernika RT in October 2012.
