Worcester Warriors lock Anton Bresler becomes the latest player to sign a contract extension with the club.

The 31-year-old follows Ted Hill, Andrew Kitchener, Francois Venter, Nick Schonert and Sam Lewis in extending their stay at Sixways recently.

Bresler started moved to Worcester Warriors in 2017 from Edinburgh and has made 30 Premiership appearances since then.

“I have really enjoyed my time here. The boys have really embraced me personally. I have fitted in easily, I get along with the coaching staff and I just enjoy everything about Worcester as a city and as a club,” Bresler told the official website of the club.

“I think we are going places and I want to be part of something big. There is definitely potential for us to become not only a top six club but if we stick to our processes and our plan I am really optimistic that we can do even better.”

The Namibia born lock also played in Currie Cup and Super Rugby for Sharks before joining Edinburgh.

“Bressie has made a huge impact here at Sixways and it is great news for the club that he is staying on with us,” said Worcester director of rugby Alan Solomons.

“He is a superb lock with a huge physical presence and he has become a central figure in our team. He is a quality bloke and a great team man who adds huge value. I am really looking forward to continuing working with him.”

Worcester Warriors are currently positioned fourth in the Gallagher Premiership with three wins from five games while they are second in Pool 1 of European Challenge Cup after a win and a defeat apiece in two matches.
