Dowsett a Worcester per sostituire Hougaard

Scritto da Manuel Zobbio

Worcester Warriors hanno messo sotto contratto il mediano di mischia australiano Michael Dowsett. Nato a Sydney ma qualificato per giocare come inglese, il ventiquattrenne Dowsett si trasferisce al Sixways dopo tre stagioni in Super Rugby con gli ACT Brumbies per prendere il posto dell’infortunato Francois Hougaard.

The exciting 24-year-old joins up with his new teammates immediately to provide further competition for the number-nine jersey at Sixways.

Dowsett spent three seasons with Australian Super Rugby side ACT Brumbies, having made his debut back in 2014.

The half-back went on to make 22 appearances for the Canberra-based side, with the latest coming in this year’s Super Rugby campaign.

A competent kicker with both feet, the scrum-half has learnt his craft under the guidance of Wallabies legends Stephen Larkham and George Gregan, while also having been mentored by Nic White at the Brumbies.

Dowsett recently featured for New Zealand outfit Southland in their Mitre 10 Cup competition while he also counts Canberra Vikings and New South Wales Country Eagles as former clubs.

Head Coach Carl Hogg said: “Obviously we were really disappointed to lose Francois Hougaard for a lengthy period of time but we’re delighted to capture someone of Michael’s quality.

“He is a young, hungry player who will provide stiff competition for the scrum-half jersey.

“His experience playing in one of Super Rugby’s best teams and alongside a host of Wallaby internationals, will only be of great benefit to our young squad.”

Dowsett added: “I can’t wait to join up with my new teammates and to get out on the field and show what I can do.

“Worcester are ambitious as I am myself, and I want to showcase what I’ve got and try and help push this Club to where it wants to be.”
