Prop Joe Morris has signed an extended contract with Worcester Warriors.
The 22-year-old made his senior debut against Exeter in 2019 but has played only four first-team matches since.
Warriors head coach Jonathan Thomas said: “Tight-heads don’t mature until mid to late twenties. The challenge for Joe is getting some game time.
“But we are excited about his potential. He’s a big man, he’s really diligent and conscientious. He’s also smart and a quick learner.”
Morris gained experience on dual-registration deals with National Two side Henley Hawks and with Hartpury and Yorkshire Carnegie in the Championship.
Warriors have not disclosed the length of his new contract.
