Brain rules out Buckland move

Warriors Director of Rugby John Brain has ended speculation linking James Buckland and a summer move to Sixways.

England Saxons hooker James Buckland announced yesterday (Thursday) that he is to leave Leicester Tigers at the end of the current 2006/2007 season and he had been linked in the media to Warriors.

However, Brain has today declared that he has no interest in Buckland, with hookers Chris Fortey, Aleki Lutui and Ben Gotting currently contracted at Sixways.
