Van Breda pens new two-year Warriors deal
Premiership side Worcester Warriors have moved to tie down utility back Scott van Breda to a new two-year contract.
The 27-year-old South African, who moved to Sixways from Jersey in the summer, only made his debut as a fly-half in the 34-22 Premiership Cup defeat at Saracens on November 11 because of a pre-season shoulder problem which had kept him sidelined.
He has also featured in the European Challenge Cup matches against Pau, where he played in a full-back role with his performances over the past six weeks convincing the club to tie him down for a longer stay.
"It was a no-brainer signing on for two more years. I am thoroughly enjoying myself here," Van Breda said. "I have just had a couple of tough years moving around a lot and it is nice to have some stability again."
Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons, who also worked with Van Breda when the pair were at Port-Elizabeth-based South African outfit Kings in Super Rugby, added on the club's website: "Scott is an incredibly versatile player and a really good goal-kicker. He is also a first-class bloke and an excellent team man."
