Absolutely fantastic news!!

Well done the club and outstanding loyalty from “Big Ted”.

Great for stability for both the club and Ted knowing he is secure for 4 seasons - at least.

I really hope one of them is Lawrence. Think his contract is up at the end of next season and I’m sure they’ll be loads of teams sniffing around.
If all the youngsters buy into solly’s plan and stay on, this could be a very good team in a couple of years.

I think there’s a strong possibility he could be.

I’d bet my mortgage that you already have a fair idea AJ.
Sounds promising anyway

Lol only because he’s thought of in the same vein as Ted.

My biggest concern with Lawrence is does he feel he can achieve what he wants to at Worcester. I think that forwards can always shine to some degree, whatever system they play in. However, if backs are playing in an attacking system that doesnt promote attacking rugby, will you get noticed by international selectors?

Dont get me wrong, would love him to sign and would be overjoyed if he did but not holding my breath sadly.

He’s been seen and identified by other clubs and England whilst playing for us already, so no problem there.

He now gets an opportunity to play against the other aspiring Centers and show how much better he is than them.

With Skerritt coming in he will develop even further and could be the clubs No1 choice, getting more rugby than moving and bench warming.

Probably all due to Covid 19 and salary cuts.

Clubs could all be offering 4 and 5 year contracts in return for reducing salaries. Which I now feel is a prep for ring fencing or 5 year moratorium on relegation.

To be honest if I was a player around Ollie or Ted’s age and I knew I had 10 years or so of potentially playing in the most talented and home grown squad we have ever had, then I wouldn’t think twice about staying

Next three Lawrence, Schonert and Owen ?

I hope you're right but the fact remains, we have always been a bottom 4 club in the prem. If you read his interview a few months back in the Rugby paper I think it was, he talks about wanting to be the worlds best, pioneering what a centre should like etc. which I would suggest does not fit the profile of who Worcester have been. Obviously, may look very different in the future and would be delighted to be proved wrong but will be sceptical until he signs.

Weir, Hougaard and Owen would be my guess.
