Worcester Warriors lock forward James Percival

Worcester Warriors forward James Percival has become the latest player to leave England for France by signing for Top 14 side Grenoble.

The 31-year-old lock has agreed a one-season deal with the Alpine club.

Percival was part of the side that won Warriors their place back in the Premiership last month.

As well as playing regularly in Dean Ryan's promotion-winning team, he was also in the side that won the British & Irish Cup in April.

Percival began his career in the Worcester academy, before playing for Northampton and Harlequins.

He then returned to Sixways for a second spell in 2011, since when he has taken his tally of appearances for the club to 88.
