Jonathan Thomas: Ospreys back row will join up with the Warriors
Worcester Warriors have confirmed the signing of vastly-experienced Wales back-row Jonathan Thomas.
The 30-year-old makes the switch to Sixways from the Ospreys, with Thomas having won two league titles during his time at the region.
Thomas made a club record 188 appearances for the Ospreys, while he has been capped 67 times for Wales - winning the Grand Slam in 2005 and 2008.
And Worcester director of rugby Dean Ryan is delighted to recruited Thomas for next season.
"We are delighted to secure a player of the quality of Jonathan Thomas," Ryan told the club's official site.
"He has huge experience from his time with the Ospreys and Wales and is versatile and can operate right across the back five.
"Jonathan is an extremely loyal and dedicated individual, underlined by the fact he has always been a one club man with Ospreys. However, a new challenge at Warriors at this stage in his career is one that excites him.
"He has experience of building from the start, having been at Ospreys since their inception in 2003, and he can now look to help us build a bright and successful future here at Sixways."
