Worcester Warriors have confirmed that centre Ollie Lawrence has signed a contract extension with the Gallagher Premiership club.

A product of Three Pears Warriors Academy, Lawrence made his senior debut in 2017 in the Anglo-Welsh Cup and has made 13 Premiership appearances for them in the last two seasons scoring a couple of tries.

Having represented England Under 18 and Under 20 sides in the past, Lawrence was called up into the training squad of England by head coach Eddie Jones at the age of 18 ahead of the summer tour in 2018.

"I’m happy to have extended my stay at the club and I’m looking forward to the next couple of seasons. I feel that I still have a lot to prove to people here and I’m ready for that challenge,” Lawrence told the official website of the club.

“There were a few conversations that needed to be had, but it was fairly straightforward. It was the right decision for me at this time.

“Worcester gave me the opportunity to become the player I am now and I feel I still have a lot to give back. I also believe we can fulfil our potential as a team over the next few seasons.

“There is a lot of competition for places within the centres and I’m looking forward to those challenges.”

Worcester Warriors were positioned 10th in the Gallagher Premiership table with four wins from 13 games when the competition was suspended due to the pandemic coronavirus.
