Solomons, who has worked as an assistant coach with South Africa and Barbarians has a 20-year experience in coaching that includes teams like Stormers, Ulster, Northampton Saints, Kings and most recently Edinburgh.

The news was confirmed by Worcester Warriors rugby director Gary Gold in a statement released by the board.

"We are delighted to welcome Alan to the club," said Gold, who is set to exit the club at the end of the ongoing season.

"He possesses huge experience after two decades at the top of the game."

"He will become an important member of the backroom set-up and the knowledge he will pass on to players will be invaluable as we look to get positive results on the pitch."
