Worcester Warriors forward Huw Taylor has signed an undisclosed-length contract with the Premiership club.

Bridgnorth-born Taylor, 20, has now made 17 first-term appearances since making his debut against Nottingham in October 2014, on course to helping Warriors win the British & Irish Cup.

He has also played for England under-20s, in last year's Six Nations and in the Junior World Championship.

"Huw is a fine young athlete who always gives everything," said boss Gary Gold.

"He has impressed when presented with opportunities in Europe and in the Anglo-Welsh Cup and I'm sure he will be nipping at the heels of our current back rowers for a chance to make his Premiership debut in the near future."

Taylor becomes the fourth Warriors Academy player to step up to a full professional contract ahead of the 2017-18 season, following fellow forward Jack Singleton, winger Josh Adams and scrum-half Jamie Shillcock.

Taylor becomes the fourth Warriors to sign a new deal in the last week, following the lead set by Gold in opting to remain as director of coaching.
