Worcester Warriors: Jonny Arr and Ravai Fatiaki sign new deals

Worcester Warriors have handed new deals to scrum-half Jonny Arr and Fijian centre Ravai Fatiaki.

The struggling Premiership club have stuck to their customary policy of not revealing the length of contract.

Home town boy Arr, 25, has been with the Sixways club all his career, having come through the ranks from the academy.

Eight-times capped Fiji international Fatiaki, 26, who is in his third season at Sixways, was signed by Richard Hill.

Staff changes for next season

  • INS - Andries Pretorius (Cardiff Blues), Matt Cox (Gloucester), Ryan Mills (Gloucester), GJ van Velze (Northampton), Charlie Mulchrone (Rotherham), Joe Rees (Ospreys), Heath Stevens (Plymouth Albion)
  • Lined up - Sam Smith (Harlequins)
  • OUTS - Josh Matavesi (Ospreys), David Lemi (Bristol), Mariano Galarza (Gloucester)

"I enjoy playing my rugby at Sixways and believe the club is moving in the right direction," said Fatiaki.

"Warriors brought me to England and I feel a strong connection with the club."

Arr added: "It's not been an easy season but things have progressed rapidly behind the scenes.

"I am confident this club will be successful. No doubt there are good times in front of us."

Arr and Fatiaki follow the lead of Worcester's other current first-choice centre Alex Grove and full-back Chris Pennell, who also signed new deals before Christmas.

Director of rugby Dean Ryan has made seven new signings ahead of next season, which looks increasingly likely to be spent in the Championship after bottom club Worcester's losing 13-match start to the current Premiership campaign.
