International stars Chris Latham and Rico Gear gave local Worcester Warriors fans a special surprise this week when they made an afternoon visit after training to Worcester Bosch.
The domestic heating and hot water products manufacturer was founded by Warriors chairman Cecil Duckworth OBE in 1962, originally known as Worcester Heat Systems Ltd and based at the Old Vinegar works in Worcester.
The Warriors chairman was invited back this week with the star duo for a behind the scenes tour around the headquarters in Warndon.
The party was guided around the manufacturing process and learnt about the domestic heating industry that Mr Duckworth had been a successful player in for many years.
Latham and Gear also signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans who work at Worcester Bosch during the hour and a half visit to the successful city company.
