Worcester Warriors Warriors have recruited Scotland international wing Duhan van der Merwe from Edinburgh as the first major signing for the 2021/22 season.
However, it’s believed if Warriors are relegated than the move for the he 6ft 4in tall and 16-and-a-half stone strike-runner would be cancelled.
The 25-year-old signed for Edinburgh in May 2017 and his prolific try-scoring – 31 in 64 appearances, including ten in his first season – since he arrived at Murrayfield helped to propel him into the international spotlight.
“I’m very excited to be joining Worcester Warriors. As a club they play an exciting brand of rugby and that is something I cannot wait to be a part of,” said van der Merwe.
