Mudariki thrilled to extend stay

Correspondent 24th Jan, 2019

ZIMBABWE international tighthead prop Farai Mudariki is the latest Warriors player to commit his future to the club by signing a new one-year contract.

Mudariki, 23, arrived at Sixways earlier this season having spent two years as an academy player at Castres Olympique and then spent a season at Federale 1 club Tarbes where former Warriors lock James Percival played alongside him.

Mudariki, the younger brother of Jersey scrum-half and Zimbabwe Sevens captain Hilton Mudariki , has made two appearances for Warriors this season and is delighted to have secured his immediate future.

“We are building a great team here and I want to be part of that as soon as possible. I plan to keep developing and hope to get some more minutes on the pitch in that process,” Mudariki said.

“I am really thankful for the guidance the coaching staff have given me thus far and for the faith they have shown in me.

“I am enjoying my time here. A few of the lads here played rugby with my older brother at some stage in their careers so I am quite familiar with them and they have helped me to settle into the club.

“It’s a great time to be part of the project at this club. I feel blessed, it’s really an exciting time to be involved.”

Mudariki is the 13th current Warriors player to sign a new contract as director of rugby Alan Solomons continues with his retention and recruitment programme.

Solomons said: “Farai is a young player with loads of potential and it’s terrific he is extending his stay with us. I have no doubt he will make his mark next season.”
