Richard de Carpentier has earned a contract with Worcester Warriors after impressing during his time on trial at the club.

Former England Sevens international De Carpentier previously played at Leicester Tigers and had a spell on loan at Nottingham in the RFU Championship last season.

A former England Students captain, the 22-year-old forward is a product of the Fylde club in Lancashire.

De Carpentier trained with the club throughout October and impressed when he featured for Worcester Cavaliers in the Aviva A League defeat to Newcastle Falcons.

After securing the signature of the back row, Warriors assistant head coach Nigel Redman said: "Richard has done incredibly well since joining us on trial in October.

"He played out here against Newcastle and did exceptionally well and he's made a massive impact in training. He offers a lot of quality and players get on with him.

"Richard will start his first game for us on Saturday against Scarlets so he's got an opportunity to impress. He gives us another option in the back row and his presence will no doubt drive our standards upwards."
