Worcester Warriors have confirmed that scrum-half Michael Heaney has signed a new two-year deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.
The 28-year-old joined Worcester Championship side Doncaster this summer and has also featured for Ulster and Ireland U20 side that won the Under 20s Six Nations in 2010.
Since his arrival at the Sixways, he has made three Premiership appearances and five Cup appearances for Worcester.
"Michael has shown that he can take the step up to Premiership rugby," said director of rugby Alan Solomons.
"He is a first-class bloke and an excellent team man and will no doubt continue to make a positive contribution going forward."
Heaney is excited to continue being part of Worcester as he is looking to propel his career.
“I have really enjoyed challenging myself in the Premiership so I am very happy to be extending my Sixways stay.
“I have learnt a lot from the coaches and the other scrum-halves at the Club since I arrived in the summer so I will be working hard to keep improving as a player.”
Worcester Warriors are currently at ninth place in the Gallagher Premiership table with three wins from nine games and are second in Pool 2 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup.
