Worcester Warriors have confirmed scrum-half Luke Baldwin has penned a new three-year deal with the Aviva Premiership club.
Baldwin made his professional rugby debut with Saracens in 2006 and decided to shift from the Allianz Park outfit in 2013. After stints with Blackheath, Bedford Blues and Bristol, the 27-year-old joined the Warriors in 2015. However, his first team appearances for the Sixways side has been limited to just 32 due to injuries.
"I'm thrilled to have the security, but I haven't signed a three-year deal on the basis of not playing for the next three years," he told BBC Sport.
"If your job title is professional rugby player, you want to be playing.
"There is fierce competition in the half-backs. Franny is leading the way but it is up to the rest of us to nip at his heels and provide genuine fierce competition for his shirt."
Worcester Warriors are currently positioned 11th in the Aviva Premiership table with three wins from 13 games.
