Pennell wins February Player of the Month

Warriors full-back scoops monthly prize

Warriors full-back Chris Pennell has scooped the February Miller & Carter Player of the Month award.

The England international, who has made 197 appearances for Warriors, enjoyed a fine month in the Blue and Gold as Warriors picked up memorable wins over Exeter Chiefs and Gloucester Rugby.

Pennell kicked two penalties as Warriors battled valiantly to earn a 6-5 win at Sandy Park as they became the first side to beat Exeter on their own patch in the Premiership since October 2016.

He kicked another ten points a week later as Warriors defeated local rivals Gloucester 25-15 at Sixways before landing another three kicks from three at London Irish in the last match of February.

Pennell (29 per cent) edged Darren Barry (28) by just a couple of votes to win the monthly prize while Bryce Heem (15) and Sam Lewis (14) were also amongst the most voted.

Pennell picks up a £50 voucher to spend at Miller & Carter restaurant in Worcester after his impressive month.
