Worcester appoint Johnston

Worcester have announced the appointment of Nick Johnston as their high performance director.

Johnston will move to Sixways from Worcester's Aviva Premiership rivals Northampton, having left the Saints last month following five years at Franklin's Gardens.

Worcester say Johnston will be responsible for implementing "world-class systems and procedures".

His appointment has been welcomed by Warriors rugby director Dean Ryan, who said: "I am absolutely delighted that Nick has agreed to join us.

"His record in high performance management and the development of the academy programme is second to none, and I know this appointment will be a tremendous boost to this club.

"His appointment is further evidence to our ever increasing commitment to the long-term development of Worcester Warriors."
