PREMIERSHIP NEWS: Loose forward Matt Cox will remain at Sixways after putting pen to paper in a new deal with Worcester Warriors.

The Redditch-born Warriors Academy graduate has been in fine form this season across the Challenge Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup campaigns, having made the most carries of any player in the European competition after amassing 100 in just six games.

"Coxy is a true professional with an incredible work ethic and we're delighted he has committed his future to the Club. You know precisely what you're going to get with Coxy and that is 110 percent whether it is on or off the field," Director of Rugby Gary Gold said.
 
The powerful forward came through the ranks at Sixways, joining full-time in 2004, and scored a try on his debut against Wasps in 2008, before moving to Gloucester in 2010. Cox spent four seasons at Kingsholm where he made 62 appearances and helped the Cherry and Whites qualify for the European Cup in two campaigns.

He returned to Sixways in 2014, playing an important role as Warriors won the B&I Cup and promotion to the Premiership in his first season back at his home Club. In his early days, Cox also represented England at Under-18, U-19 and U-20 levels, as well as featuring for England Sevens.
 
"I am really happy to re-sign and to continue the journey that I came back to Sixways for. Worcester is obviously close to my heart and to sign a new deal was an easy decision. Playing for Worcester means an awful lot to me as it's my home Club and it makes that drive to play even more special.

"Hopefully now I can play a part in trying to move us up the Premiership table and to compete with the best sides in England and Europe in the coming seasons," Cox said.
