Date published: June 28 2016

Worcester Warriors announced the signing of tighthead prop Biyi Alo, who has joined the club from Saracens, ahead of next season.

The 22-year-old was part of the Saracens set-up for nearly six years and made his Premiership debut against Harlequins at Wembley in March 2015.

Alo started against Worcester Cavaliers as Saracens Storm claimed the Premiership A League title at Sixways in January 2015 before helping a young Saracens first-team lift the LV= Cup later that year. 

After graduating from Loughborough University with a degree in Sports Science, Sport Development and Sport Management, the talented forward spent time with Old Albanians and also enjoyed a spell with Bedford Blues last season. 

On the international front Alo was previously part of the England U20 squad which claimed the World Rugby U20 Championship in 2014 after victory over South Africa in Auckland.
