Noah Heward has found himself a new team after Worcester collapse
Noah Heward has become the latest Worcester player to source new employment following the recent financial implosion of the Warriors. A large chunk of the Gallagher Premiership club’s squad have moved on elsewhere and Heward has now joined them in exiting Sixways, linking up with Pat Lam’s Bristol.
Heward is the third Worcesrer player that the Bears have accommodated. Joe Batley was quickly signed on October 6 after the company holding the Warriors player contracts was made insolvent at a court hearing, while last week they brought prop Jay Tyack in on a trial basis that commenced with him getting chosen on their bench for Saturday’s loss at Northampton.
Now Heward has arrived in the door at Ashton Gate, his two-year deal enabling him to draw a line under a fraught few weeks following the Worcester collapse. A Bristol statement read: “Versatile back-three player Noah Heward has joined Bristol Bears on a two-year deal with immediate effect.
“The 22-year-old former Worcester flyer, who can play at wing or full-back and represented England at U18 and U20 level, made 23 appearances for the Warriors.”
Director of rugby Lam said: “Noah is a talented player who is equally at home at full-back or on the wing. He is a fiercely ambitious young man with a great attitude and willingness to improve, and we’re pleased to be able to offer him this opportunity.”
Heward added: “I’m really excited to be joining Bristol Bears and I can’t wait to get started. I’m grateful for the opportunity and excited for the future at Ashton Gate.”
