Worcester look to rebuild and improve
Worcester Warriors had quite a disappointing season in the Rugby Premiership ending up second from the bottom. A number of poor performances and failure to capitalize on the crucial situations led to their downfall in the standings. Even though they are relegated to the Championship, the Director of Rugby Dean Ryan sounded optimistic about the attitude of their fans, saying that they were still full of support for the club. In order to ensure an all round development of the club the officials are concentrating on the infrastructural facilities especially the youth academy. Spreading the academy across the West Midlands is on the cards for the club. They are planning to set up six centers of excellence at Shropshire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire and Great Birmingham along with satellite academies at Broadstreet Rugby Club, Hereford Cathedral School, Luctonians Rugby Club, Telford College of Art and Technology, Warwick School and an undecided Birmingham location. Worcester is also planning to rope in some additional strength and conditioning coaches, physiotherapists and nutritionists.
Worcester is now in the same league as Moseley owing to their relegation and this has left the latter club in much retrospective. Although the youth and development manager Simon Bartlett has recognized the threat imposed on them by their rivals yet he believes that his own club shall be ready to face up to the challenge. Both the clubs boast of their youth development program and the number of players those have come through from the same and are determined to maintain their reputation. The greatest impetus to the Warriors has been the decision of their talisman Chris Pennel who was determined to lead his club out of relegation in the next season as a result of which he refused to represent any other club on loan. The club shall be banking on his experience and their elaborate plans to fetch better results.
