Worcester have bolstered their fly-half options for next season after agreeing deals with Danny Gray and Joe Carlisle.

Gray has signed a 12-month deal to move from Montauban in France in the summer, while Carlisle has agreed to new two-year contract at the Warriors.

Gray previously worked with Worcester coach Richard Hill at Bristol, scoring 326 points in 61 appearances.

And with England international Andy Goode also vying for the No.10 jersey, Hill is pleased with the competition in his squad.

"We are delighted to reveal we have signed outside half Danny Gray from his spell in France with Montauban," said Hill.

"Danny has had previous spells at Bristol and Exeter and we are pleased to be able to bring him back to England. He is a consummate professional who works hard at his game and is an excellent goal kicker.

"He understands the game really well and I think he will give us a really nice balance with Andy Goode with all his experience, Joe Carlisle with real flair and Danny who has the quality to really step up for us."
