Worcester Warriors centre Will Butler has already signed a fresh two-year contract with the Premiership club after recovering from knee operation.

After scoring two tries in the opening 12 minutes, the 20-year-old academy player was injured less than half an hour to his whole Premiership debut.

After having surgery in August he was subsequently ruled out until December.

But he left his first appearance of the season against Pau weekend.

After his return at that European Challenge Cup triumph at Sixways, director of rugby Alan Solomons is currently prepared to consider him for its Warriors’ squad, at the lack of the Ben Te’o of England.

“He is a good young player,” Solomons told BBC Hereford & Worcester. “He is a boy who will get larger and stronger, we’ll make sure of this, also includes a glowing future ahead of him. He’s got skills that were good and a fantastic rugby brain.

“All these young guys coming through the academy, I’m very happy about. Aside from Will Butler and Ted Hill, there’s Kai Owen in loose-head, Joe Morris in tight-head, Beck Cutting at hooker, Justin Clegg and Andrew Kitchener in lock, Ollie Lawrence in center and Nick David in Fullback. That is very powerful.”

Butler’s pathway to the first team

He then scored twice on his first Premiership beginning on that the last afternoon of this summer season at Northampton, only to go off injured at the 29th minute.
