Josh Drauniniu

Worcester Warriors added even more ammunition to the club’s firepower with the signing of try machine Josh Drauniniu from London Welsh in 2011.

He enjoyed a fantastic start to life at Sixways as he racked-up five tries in his first six matches for the club.

He became a regular on the wing during his second season and, by the end of the 2012/13 campaign, he had already scored 19 tries in 30 outings.

Flying wing Drauniniu joined Welsh from near neighbours Harlequins in May 2010 and proved to be one of the most deadly predators in the RFU Championship during  the 2010/11 season, scoring 16 tries in 22 games.

The former England Sevens wing also scored twice against Warriors during the regular season in 2010/11, including a stunning solo effort from inside his own half in the fixture at Sixways.

Born in Suva in Fiji, Drauniniu joined the Royal Navy in 2003 at the age of 17 and saw active service in the Gulf in 2005. Drauniniu was soon introduced to rugby union, having played rugby league and football at school in Fiji, and he made his debut in the annual Army versus Navy match at Twickenham in 2004.

Three years later he was signed by Exeter Chiefs, where his pace on the wing caught the eye of the England Sevens selectors. He scored a sensational try on his international debut against Portugal in Dubai in 2008.

Drauniniu was named in Rugby Times' National League One Team of the Season for 2008/09, having scored 16 tries. In his first season he had raced in for 22 tries, and it was that sort of form that alerted Harlequins to take him to the Premiership.

His first start for Quins came in a 9-9 draw with London Irish at the Stoop in October 2009, but the highlight of his spell at the club would come at Franklins Gardens three weeks later when he scored two tries as a second half replacement in a 27-16 defeat.

In February 2010 he forced his way back into Ben Ryan's England Sevens team for the Adelaide and Hong Kong legs of the IRB World Series.

After a number of impressive performances throughout 2012, Drauniniu signed a new contract to extend his stay at Sixways in January 2013.

He then went on to finish the 2012/13 season as joint-top try scorer alongside David Lemi.
