Biggs agrees Worcester switch

Bath winger Tom Biggs has agreed to join Worcester in the summer, the Warriors have announced.

The 29-year-old former Leeds and Newcastle man was Bath's top try scorer during the 2011-12 season and picked up the Supporter's Player of the Year award in that campaign.

"I am excited about the challenge of joining Worcester," said Biggs, capped by England at Under-21, Sevens and Saxons level.

"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 (director of rugby Dean Ryan) 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."
