Warriors Women sign Wales international

Wales international Natalia John has joined Warriors Women from Bristol Bears as preparations get underway for the 2022/23 Allianz Premier 15s season.

Capped 27 times, John made her Wales debut in 2018 against Scotland in the Six Nations having impressed selectors during her time with Swansea University.

“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to work with the club and build on last season,” said the 26-year-old second-row, who hails from Pontypridd.

“I’ve been working hard over the past couple of months, pushing myself to really impress at the World Cup later this year.

“I’m also really excited to work with some of my Welsh teammates at Sixways Stadium, and joining Warriors gives me the perfect opportunity to grow and develop as a player.”

Director of Rugby Jo Yapp is looking forward to welcoming John to Sixways, adding: “Natalia is an experienced player, who is still really eager to learn and develop.

“We believe that she will add value to the squad and environment.”
