Worcester sign fly-half Lamb

Worcester have signed fly-half Ryan Lamb from Leicester with immediate effect.

The 27-year-old is an experienced Premiership player and has amassed 932 points in 133 appearances during spells with Gloucester, London Irish, Northampton and the Tigers.

Lamb, who worked with Warriors director of rugby Dean Ryan at Gloucester, has also featured regularly in the Heineken Cup, racking up 302 points during 42 matches in Europe's premier competition.

Lamb said: "I've really enjoyed my time at Leicester but a lack of game time meant that when the opportunity to join Worcester came up, I didn't want to pass it by.

"I've obviously worked with Dean before at Gloucester and after finding out what he's building at Worcester, I was excited and wanted to be part of that journey and part of that new culture."

Ryan said: "I am looking forward to renewing my relationship with Ryan at the Warriors, where we have a different challenge to those we have faced before.

"When the chance to bring him here came up, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to add another talented English back to the team here at Worcester."
