Worcester confirm Howe extension

28th January 2020, 18:03 by James Mason

Tom Howe has secured his Worcester future for the next two years after signing a new contract until 2022.

Former England Under-20 international Howe has agreed a two-year contract extension and becomes the 16th player to have committed to fresh terms to remain at Sixways for next season at least.

The 24-year-old was forced to bide his time for first-team opportunities, but he has started the last three Premiership matches, which have seen the Warriors beat London Irish before losing to Saracens and Wasps.

Speaking about his new deal, Howe told the club's website: "It's good to see so many of the young guys have re-signed. At the start of the season it was a little frustrating as I wasn't getting that game time. But I knew, if I was patient, the opportunities would come."

Worcester director of rugby Alan Solomons also commented on the latest player to pen fresh terms, adding: "Tom is a great bloke, a tremendous team man and a real asset to the club."

The Warriors are currently eighth in the Premiership, five points behind fourth-placed Gloucester.
