Matt Kvesic, a product of the AASE and Academy system at Sixways, has made an explosive impact at Warriors after forcing his way into Richard Hill’s first team plans and a star-studded back row.
The power packed forward first grabbed the attention of fans in the A League during the 2009/10 season with a number of superb displays – including a first half hat-trick against Newcastle Falcons.
He then dominated the headlines when he became the youngest Warrior in the professional era against Scarlets in the LV=Cup.
Kvesic, who was born to English parents in Iserlohn, Germany, where his father Mark, an Army rugby player, had been posted, did not take a step back during the 2010/11 season, celebrating his full RFU Championship debut by grabbing two tries against Esher Rugby at Sixways.
The back row dynamo. who has captained England Under-18s and is part of the England Under-20 set-up, has already made the kind of impression that has many Worcester supporters hailing him as a future star in the making.
Kvesic was duly named the Young Player-of-the-Year in the club's End-of-Season Awards in 2011 and later that summer took part in the Junior World Championships for England Under-20s in Italy.
In February 2013 it was announced that Kvesic will be joining Gloucester Rugby ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.
