Former Lions lock O'Callaghan signs new Worcester deal

Worcester Warriors have secured the services of former Ireland and British and Irish Lions forward Donncha O'Callaghan for another year.

Former Ireland and British and Irish Lions lock Donncha O'Callaghan has signed a new one-year deal with Worcester Warriors.

O'Callaghan, capped 94 times by his country as well as on four occasions by the Lions during tours to New Zealand and South Africa, joined Worcester in 2015 after 17 years with Munster.

The 38-year-old was handed the Worcester captaincy earlier this year and since then the Warriors have picked up 17 points from six matches – a run which has helped confirm their Premiership status for another season.

"Our recent form has been reasonably encouraging and that provides us with a decent platform for next season," said O'Callaghan.

"People often talk about what Warriors can become, but it really is time we started to deliver consistent success on the field. Nothing else is acceptable. 

"I believe we have the staff and the squad to compete next season, and I am really excited by the challenge."
