Moving: Sam Smith

Worcester Warriors have announced the signing of Harlequins winger Sam Smith when his contract is up at the end of the season.

The 23-year-old will move to Sixways after five years at the Stoop, during which time he helped Quins to the Premiership title in 2012 and the LV= Cup in March 2013.

The prolific winger has scored 25 tries in 69 games for Harlequins and has been a regular feature in the Heineken Cup over the last three years.

"I have really enjoyed my time at Harlequins, making this a tough decision, but when I spoke to Dean it was clear to me that I wanted to be a part of his vision at Worcester," said Smith.

"The opportunity to develop as a rugby player and take on this exciting challenge is one I am looking forward to getting stuck into."

"Sam fits the profile of the type of player we want to attract to Sixways to ensure we build a successful side," said Warriors Director of Rugby Dean Ryan.

"He is young, hungry to succeed and will be an important part of the culture we are creating.

"He is someone who had a choice of where to play his rugby and I am delighted that he has decided to join us, especially as he complements our talented line of English backs."
