Worcester Warriors sign London Welsh's Josh Drauniniu

London Welsh wing Josh Drauniniu has agreed to join Worcester Warriors for the 2011/12 season.

The 25-year-old joined the Exiles from Harlequins in 2010 and has scored 16 tries in 22 starts this season.

The Fiji-born Gulf war veteran made his debut for the Royal Navy against the Army at Twickenham in 2004 before joining Exeter three years later.

The former England Sevens international will join London Welsh team-mate Errie Claassens at Sixways next season.

Head coach Richard Hill said: "I first saw Josh playing for the Royal Navy three or four years ago, while he was at Exeter, and he was the standout performer. He was a raw talent and a real try-scoring machine who I have tracked ever since.

"This year he has had a particularly strong season for London Welsh and has been up with the best of them in terms of scoring tries and has matched the likes of Miles Benjamin and Marcel Garvey.

"We want players like Miles and Marcel who are try-scorers and who can, out of nothing, explode into life.

"When he has played against us this season he has been a real thorn in our side and so we are delighted that he will now pull on a Worcester jersey next season.

"Both Josh and Errie Claassens have really benefited from the style and positive attitude that London Welsh have adopted throughout this season and hopefully the move to Warriors will see them get even better."
