Worcester Warriors have confirmed the departure of fly-half Luke Scully at the end of the ongoing season.
The 19-year-old has been part of Worcester Academy since 2018 and has been impressive for the club in the Premiership Rugby Shield this season. He also went on to represent Wales Under 20 side in the recently concluded U20 Six Nations encounter against Italy last weekend and will now head head to Cardiff Blues ahead of the upcoming season.
Warriors’ Academy Manager Mike Hall expressed regret on losing Scully and believes being a non-English Qualified Player has limited his chances.
"We are extremely sorry to see Luke go, however him not being an English Qualified Player was severely restricting his game time within the senior squad,” said Hall.
“He would have been involved in several of the recent European Challenge Cup games, but his lack of EQP status meant he missed out.
“For Luke to develop he needs to be gaining these opportunities to move his game forward. We are therefore delighted that he has managed to secure a deal with Cardiff Blues which will help him to gain this exposure.
“All of the staff and players here at Warriors will watch his career progression with great interest.
“We cannot speak highly enough of Luke as a character and team member. He has been absolutely first-class in every aspect of his approach to being a part of the Warriors’ family. We wish him all the very best”.
