Worcester move an 'amazing opportunity' - Moulds

25th April 2019, 16:07 by Craig Smithson

Hooker Matt Moulds is relishing an "amazing opportunity" after agreeing to join Worcester from Super Rugby side Blues from next season.

The Warriors have wasted no time in making plans for the 2019-20 Premiership campaign as the 27-year-old New Zealander is now their seventh new signing.

And Moulds, who has penned an undisclosed deal at Sixways Stadium, said on the club's website: "To be able to live in the UK and play in the Gallagher Premiership, at a great club with great people, is an amazing opportunity for me.

"I am really looking forward to working with everyone.

"My current focus is to finish a strong campaign here with The Blues.

"It is going to be hard to leave but I am excited to further myself as a player, building on all that I have learned here in NZ, in this new phase of my career."

Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons said: "It is fantastic news for the club that we have been able to secure the services of Matt, who has been part of the Blues Super Rugby squad for the past five seasons.

"He is an experienced hooker with a strong set piece and great mobility around the park. I have no doubt that he will add huge value to the team."
