Wing Stephenson joins Worcester

Worcester have announced the signing of prolific try-scoring wing James Stephenson from Championship club Bedford.

The 23-year-old has claimed 15 touchdowns in 17 games this season. He becomes Worcester's eighth new signing for next season.

"We are trying to build for the future, and James is a real talent who is hungry and the right age," said Worcester head coach Richard Hill.

"This year in the RFU Championship he has shown what an excellent player he is.

"He is a player with huge potential to get even better, and he has shown his undoubted try-scoring ability at Bedford Blues.

"He is fast and he's very powerful, and being an ex-back row forward he likes the contact, so he is an aggressive and strong winger."
