Worcester host newly crowned European champions Saracens at Sixways this Saturday, and it will be Adams’ final game for the club he joined in 2015. Going into the match, the winger wrote on his Instagram “What an amazing 4 years it’s been, I can’t thank this club enough for the opportunity it gave me.”

So it’s my last week as a Worcester warrior. What a amazing 4 years it’s been, I can’t thank this club enough for the opportunity it gave me. I’ve made some friends for life and enjoyed taking the field every game with the boys win or lose. The welcome and support I’ve had from day 1 is massively appreciated and I’m proud to have represented the Worcester warriors. Let’s get Sixways rocking one last time and finish this season off with a win. Thank you Worcester ?? #COYW
Worcester picked up Adams when he had been released by the Scarlets in Wales, and at the time he did not appear to have much of a future with Wales. However, his superb form with the Warriors over the past four years has meant that Warren Gatland simply had to pick him. Adams made his debut for Wales in the 2018 Six Nations, after being named the Premiership Player of the Month in December 2017, and has since then established himself as a starter for Wales, winning the Grand Slam this year.
However, if the 24-year-old wishes to continue playing for his country, he must move to a Welsh region, based on the new 60-cap ruling. While he was eligible to play for Wales before, as he was uncapped when he signed for Worcester, he must return to Wales now that he has represented his country.
Josh Adams has been one of Worcester’s best players over the past few seasons, and will be missed. He has helped his side stave off relegation this season, as they have battled with Leicester and Newcastle to avoid the drop. He hopes to end his Worcester career with a win, which will be a tall order against the rampant Saracens, but it would be a fitting end to his time at Sixways.
