Bath wing Tom Biggs has signed for Worcester Warriors as the Sixways club continue their recruitment drive ahead of likely relegation from the Aviva Premiership.
Biggs had been due to switch codes via a summer move to Super League's Hull FC, but the deal fell through after Biggs failed to secure an early release from his Bath contract. He joins the likes of GJ van Velze and Joe Rees in moving to Sixways for next season.
Biggs said: "I am excited about the challenge of joining Worcester. They are a very ambitious club but have not reached where they have wanted to be over recent seasons and I want to play a part in helping them achieve success.
"I am looking forward to working with Carl Hogg again who I worked with at Leeds and with my ex-Bath teammate Sam Vesty.
"When I met with Dean he was very honest about where the club were and where he wants to take it. He is also a fellow Staffordshire bull terrier owner and that was a deal breaker."
Worcester are eight points adrift at the foot of the Premiership and face league leaders Saracens in their next fixture on May 3. They close the campaign against Gloucester on May 10.
Worcester director of rugby Dean Ryan said: "Tom is an exciting player who has the ability to demonstrate flashes of brilliance and change the outcome of any match.
"He has been a consistent Premiership performer for a decade and when he became available to sign, it was an easy decision to make.
"His presence amongst our emerging backline will be invaluable to us next season, as will his experience of playing in a successful environment."
