WARRIORS Women are continuing to strengthen with the re-signing of three players for the 2020/21 season.

Director of rugby Jo Yapp has re-signed USA international Narcisse Jordan, England Under-20 wing Cara Clarke and former England fly-half Megan Goddard as the new season approaches.

The signings of the trio means Warriors have now re-signed 23 players after the weekend signing of England back-row Jo Brown.

Brown, 26, who makes the switch from Loughborough Lightning, has been capped seven times by the Red Roses and was part of the team that stormed to a Six Nations Grand Slam last year.

She said: “I’m really excited to join Worcester as the team are building something great under Jo Yapp. I can’t wait to progress my career both on and off the field.”

Warriors Women Director of Rugby Jo Yapp is delighted to have secured the services of the dynamic forward, adding: “We are really excited to have Jo join us. She has international experience and will fit into what is a really competitive and exciting back-row.”

Jordan, 26, joined Warriors last summer after impressing for Cardiff Met University where she is studying a Masters in Fine Art.

A versatile forward having played at loosehead and tighthead prop as well as in the back-row, Jordan started playing rugby at the age of 18 for Notre Dame College in Cleveland, Ohio.

She said: “I’m super excited to come back to play another season with such amazing athletes and to be coached by some of the most amazing staff."

Academy forwards transition coach and Warriors Women forwards coach Mike Hill, added: “Narcisse is a powerful athlete, who really started to show her potential as we went through the season.

“She is hungry to develop and will be invaluable next season as she brings so much energy to us as a squad.”

Joining Jordan in committing her future to Warriors, is 20-year-old Clarke who won the Tri-Nations with England Under-20s last year.

She said: "I’m extremely excited to be re-signing with Worcester. Warriors Women has got such a family feel and Jo has created such an incredible environment. I’m looking forward to getting out and playing with the girls when rugby resumes."

Rounding off the trio of re-signings is Warriors Women stalwart Goddard, who won the Premiership title with Worcester in 2013aged just 18.

Winning five England caps, the talented fly-half made history in 2017 when she was selected to represent the first ever women’s Barbarians team and was named Player of the Match as she helped them to a 19-0 victory over Munster.

Warriors Women lead coach Sian Moore said: “It’s great to have Cara and Megan re-sign with us. Cara is a local talent that we haven’t seen the best of yet.

"She has pace that will frighten any defensive team and having had a frustrating season due to injury, I’m in no doubt that she will be hungrier than ever to perform in a Warriors shirt.

“It’s also great to have Megan on board with us as she’s one of our more experienced players within the squad. Her rugby achievements to date are impressive and she still has much more to showcase with her natural ability with ball in hand, her coolness under pressure and her passion to perform.”
