Worcester bring in 30-cap tighthead after Diamond slams his side
Worcester Warriors have made their fourth signing in a matter of days ahead of next season, brining in Argentina tighthead Santiago Medrano.
The 25-year-old will arrive from Australia’s Western Force, where the Warriors have also signed back row Fergus Lee-Warner from.
This signing comes just a few days after lead rugby consultant Steve Diamond labelled his side “pathetic” following their 45-10 loss to Newcastle Falcons at home on Saturday. The loss meant Worcester sit second from bottom in the Gallagher Premiership table.
“I’m delighted to be joining Worcester Warriors. From the moment I spoke with Steve, I knew this was the club for me,” Medrano said.
“The Premiership is the best competition in the world. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and play in front of our fans at Sixways.”
Diamond added: “Santi is a dynamic, powerful and mobile prop.
“He comes highly recommended and, at 25 years-old with 30 caps under his belt, has the ideal profile I am looking for to join the club.”
