Worcester have re-signed Bristol Bears forward Jack Cosgrove on an initial deal until the end of the season.

The loose-head prop, 24, returns to Sixways as cover for Ryan Bower, who is ruled out for the rest of the 2018-19 campaign by an Achilles tendon injury.

After leaving Worcester for Edinburgh, he then moved to Bristol in 2017.

He was a member of Bristol's Championship-winning team in 2017-18, but has only made one top-flight appearance this season.

Warriors academy product Cosgrove, who was capped by Scotland at Under-20 level, has been registered by Warriors for their European Challenge Cup campaign, which resumes this Friday night in south-west France against Pau.

Lock Michael Fatialofa, who joined Warriors from Auckland, will also be eligible for the European games, but both Bower and injured Scotland international back-row forward Cornell du Preez have been de-registered.
