Worcester lock Greg Rawlinson has set his sights on going out on a high after confirming he would be leaving the club at the end of the season.

The popular former All Black is set to return to New Zealand, bring an end to his four-year stint at Sixways.

During that time Rawlinson, a top lineout operator, has made nearly 100 appearances for the Warriors.

And the 32-year-old is determined to help the Championship outfit return to the top-flight before he departs.

Rawlinson said: "I have really enjoyed my time at Worcester Warriors and in England.

"It has been a couple of tough years, but with the way the guys are working now, and the systems we have in place, I know that if we play to our potential we can gain promotion back to the Premiership.

"I have always had a great relationship with the fans who have backed me since my arrival in 2007. Playing in front of a packed Sixways Stadium will be a special memory that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

"My focus is now on the rest of this season and doing everything I can to help the club win promotion. After that, I hope to be able to return to Sixways in the future and cheer the Warriors on from the stands."
