Former France international tight-head prop Olivier Sourgens has joined Worcester Warriors on a one-year deal from Bordeaux-Bègles.

Sourgens made his international debut in France's two Test tour of New Zealand in 2007.

The 37-year-old, who has also played six times for France A, has enjoyed a 14-year club rugby career in France.

"I'm delighted to have secured the services of Olivier Sourgens," said director of rugby Mike Ruddock.

"Olivier is a very experienced prop with international and has experience over many years.


"He is a proven scrummager and an all-round robust and aggressive forward. Olivier comes highly recommended and, from what I've seen of him in action, he looks a very good signing for us.

"We are keen to utilise his experience to add to the youthful exuberance provided in our squad by the likes of Matt Mullan, Callum Black and Shaun Ruwers.

"Also, due to the doubts over Chris Horsman, it is important we reinforce this area as soon as possible."
