Worcester Warriors have agreed a deal to sign back row Cameron Goodhue ahead of the 2013/14 season.
The 26-year-old New Zealander, who plays predominantly at No 8, is the eighth new forward signing at Sixways this summer, joining Mike Williams, Leonardo Senatore, Agustin Creevy, Paul Andrew, Ofa Fainga'anuku, Chris Brooker and Jonathan Thomas in a new-look pack.
Recruited by previous head coach Richard Hill, Goodhue has been part of the Auckland Blues set-up and has featured for Northland, but is an English-qualified player due to his grandparents.
"I am extremely excited about joining the Worcester Warriors," said Goodhue.
"Playing in the Aviva Premiership has always been an ambition of mine, and I can't wait to join up with my team-mates in the summer.
"I have heard great things about the passionate fans at Sixways, and it is a great time to be getting involved with the club with Dean Ryan, Carl Hogg and Shane Howarth now at the helm."
