NEWS: New Zealand Sevens international Bryce Heem has extended his stay at Worcester Warriors.

The wing, who made his club debut last year made an impact in his first year in the Premiership, scoring seven tries in 18 appearances before picking up the club’s ‘Player of the Season’ award.

The 27-year-old was also at the top end of the Premiership stats tables for carries, metres made, defenders beaten and offloads last season.

Before moving to Sixways, the star impressed at Super Rugby franchise the Chiefs and helped them to the semifinals of the competition in 2015.

"Staying on at Warriors was an easy decision for me and my wife," Heem said.

"We have really enjoyed our first year in Worcester, we've made some great friends and I love the team culture.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of making us a top-end side and will try to add value in all areas to help the club reach its goals.”

Heem was also part of the Auckland side that reached the 10 Cup Final of the same year.

"Extending the contract of Bryce  [Heem] is a huge statement of intent from the club," said Warriors head coach Carl Hogg.

"Bryce is a top performer who proved himself in the Premiership last season and having someone of his calibre committing themselves to the journey at Sixways is of huge benefit to the club,"
