Date published: December 2 2015

Worcester Warriors have announced that experienced scrum-half Jonny Arr has put pen to paper on a new contract at the Premiership club.

The home-grown talent came through the Warriors ranks before making his first-team debut in 2007 and has gone on to become one of the team's senior players with 173 appearances to date. 

Arr, who turned 27 last weekend, gained international honours with the England U20s back in 2008 when he was part of a squad that achieved the Grand Slam in the Six Nations.

"Jonny epitomises everything we are trying to achieve at this club," said director of rugby Dean Ryan.

"He recognises the importance of competition for places to make a strong squad and continues to raise his game.

"His commitment, professionalism and experience are key attributes and he is a great role model for our younger players.

"Jonny will continue to play a significant role at the Club and we're delighted he's agreed to pledge his future."

Arr said: "Having been involved with Worcester Rugby since I was ten, I have witnessed a lot of change at the club but under the current regime, we are in the perfect place to become the best we have ever been. 

"It's clear to see the development around the club over the past two campaigns and I want to continue to be a part of developing Warriors into a successful, top-tier side."
