VERSATILE back Scott van Breda will join Worcester Warriors from Championship side Jersey Reds in the summer after agreeing a one-year deal. Jersey's captain predominantly plays at full-back but can also play at fly-half, centre, full-back or wing.

Van Breda is an experienced kicker who racked up an impressive 405 points in 64 games for Eastern Province Kings between 2012 and 2015, before making the move to Western Province in 2016.The 26-year-old landed 80 points in 15 appearances for the Cape Town outfit and made three appearances for the Stormers in Super Rugby.

 
   
   
   
 

Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons said: “Scott is a versatile rugby player and a very good goal-kicker. "It’s a great opportunity for him to test himself at the top level and I have no doubt he will be an asset to the side.”

In his earlier days, Van Breda helped Eastern Province to the final of the Under 21 Provincial Championship in 2011.

He finished as top points-scorer in Group B of the 2011 competition as he accrued 108 points in just eight appearances before landing a mammoth 90 points in just four games in 2012 as they won the tournament.

He also helped them earn promotion to the Currie Cup Premier Division after landing 22 points in a memorable 32-29 win in the semi-finals of the competition. Van Breda said: “I’m excited to make the move to Sixways to try and test myself in the Premiership. I’ve worked with Alan before, he is a fantastic coach and I’m looking forward to linking up with him once again.”
