Tongan enforcer Semisi Taulava proved to be a revelation at Sixways during his debut season at the club and racked-up 20 appearances, despite missing nearly three months of the campaign through injury.
The giant number eight, who stands a menacing 6ft 5in and weighs 20 stone joined Warriors in the summer of 2012 after impressing in the RFU Championshipwith Rotherham Titans.
He has been a regular at number eight since his move and has impressed with his power and enthusiasm on the pitch.
He scored Aviva Premiership tries under the Friday night lights against London Irish and London Welsh to help Warriors to two important victories and became a fans favourite thanks to his ball carrying abilities.
Taulava, who is now qualified to play for England, enjoyed spells at Wanganui, Taranaki, Worthing and Birmingham & Solihull and previously worked as a supply PE teacher in West Sussex.
