Worcester Warriors lined up for the official team photograph ahead of the 2008/09 Guinness Premiership season as the nation’s media were introduced to the new-look squad.
Sixways Stadium opened its doors to the press for the day as the official photograph – in our new first team home shirt – was taken along with individual squad pictures.
The playing and coaching staff then took part in an afternoon of interviews for the written and broadcast media, as Sixways witnessed the biggest ever press interest in Warriors since our arrival in the top-flight.
