Rob George 19th May, 2019

WARRIORS chiefs have pledged their continued support for the women’s game at Sixways after revealing Worcester Valkyries will be renamed Worcester Warriors Women for the 2019/20 Tyrrells Premier 15s season.

The name change has been approved by the RFU’s Governance Committee, having first received the blessing of North Midlands RFU and is a significant step towards the full integration of men’s and women’s rugby at Sixways under the Warriors brand.

“Renaming the women’s team is just the beginning of a new phase whereby we, as owners, will ensure that we are committed to supporting and developing Warriors Women,” said Warriors co-owner Jason Whittingham.

“We are currently finalising our strategy to deliver an environment for our team which will be fully integrated and supported with a singular approach to all aspects of the coaching, training and development.

“The name change to Worcester Warriors Women is a positive move for the team and, in the words of Lark Davies, our England hooker, it now shows that we are integrating the women and the men to create a one-club brand and ethos.
