Humphreys excited for future with Warriors

28th January 2019, 14:24 by Bobbie Jackson

Worcester Warriors wing Perry Humphreys is excited to see what the future holds after penning a new two-year deal.

The 24-year-old was snapped up by the Warriors in 2014 after starting out life in Leicester Tigers' Academy.

Humphreys has proven to be a key figure at Sixways, having scored 12 tries in 56 appearances, and he made his 50th outing for the club in the Premiership Rugby Cup win over Leicester in November.

With plenty still to play for this season, Humphreys has committed his future to the Warriors and hopes to help them enjoy success in 2018-19.

Humphreys said: "I'm delighted to have signed a new contract and to get it sorted early in the season, which gives you that bit of extra security and certainty.

"It's an exciting time to be involved with Warriors. We've got a lot of exciting talent coming through from the Academy and a nice blend of youth and experienced players.

"We've got real depth in the squad and there is strong competition for places in all areas of the team which means that you have to keep pushing yourself and improving.

"We've also got a home European Challenge Cup quarter-final against Harlequins to look forward to, we're going well in the Premiership Rugby Cup and we are looking to push up the Premiership table in an exciting end to the season."
