Worcester have signed utility back Scott Van Breda from Championship side Jersey Reds for next season.

The South African, who can cover fly-half, full-back or centre, only joined Jersey at the start of last season.

It takes Worcester's tally of new players for next season to six.

They have so far signed Scotland forward Cornell du Preez, Wales centre Ashley Beck and prop Callum Black, Doncaster scrum-half Michael Heaney and London Scottish hooker Isaac Miller.

Van Breda has spent the majority of his career playing domestic South African rugby for Eastern Province but has also made five Super Rugby appearances.

"Scott is a versatile rugby player and a very good goal-kicker," said Warriors director of rugby Solomons. "It's a great opportunity for him to test himself at the top level and I have no doubt he will be an asset."

"I'm excited to make the move to Sixways to try and test myself in the Premiership," said Jersey captain Van Breda, who has helped his side to sixth in the table. "I've worked with Alan Solomons before. He is a fantastic coach and I'm looking forward to linking up with him once again."

Worcester are close to sealing their Premiership status for next season, having moved 16 points clear of bottom club London Irish, who they visit this weekend.
