Worcester’s recent spate of signings from New Zealand has created a sense of excited anticipation for next season’s Guinness Premiership campaign.
In action in the league week in week out will be Aaron Mauger, Sam Tuitupou, Carlos Spencer and now Rico Gear.
Commercially, these new signings will be excellent for the game – crowds will flock to see them play and the money will pour in while the turnstiles keep ringing. It is likely that global television audiences will increase, and with it the revenue from television broadcast rights.
When the excitment of the Rugby World Cup is over, the Guinness Premiership will not disappoint.
