Worcester Warriors have revealed that flanker Marco Mama has penned a one-year contract extension with the Gallagher Premiership club.

The 29-year-old suffered a dead leg in April 2019 and had undergone four operations in a span of 10 days since then. He returned to action earlier this year and now will remain with the club for another season.

Mama started his professional rugby career with Bristol Bears in 2009 and switched to Worcester Warriors ahead of the 2015/16 season. He has made 62 appearances for the Sixways based club since then including 48 games in the Premiership. He also has the experience of playing for the Zimbabwe Under 20 side in the past.

“I’m delighted to have signed a new contract at what is an exciting time for the club,” Mama said.

“We have some excellent talent in the squad and we have shown in recent months that we can retain our best players. Alan Solomons has always stated that his intention is to develop the club around a core of homegrown players.

“We also have a new coaching team in place for next season and I’m excited by the prospect of working with them.

“I’ve always enjoyed my time with Warriors and feel that I have been well accepted by the fans.”
