Niall Annett moved to Sixways from Ulster Rugby in the summer of 2014.

Known for his tremendous leadership skills, Annett captained the Ireland Under 20 team at the 2011 Junior World Championship.

He signed a development contract with Ulster in the summer of 2011 and made his senior debut against Leinster on Boxing Day of the same year.

Annett signed a full contract at Ulster ahead of the 2012/13 campaign before moving to Sixways two years later.

In his debut campaign at Sixways, the Irishman made 22 appearances and was a consistent performer as he regularly featured in the Aviva A League to help steer Worcester Cavaliers to the final, while he also played in the 2014/15 British & Irish Cup squad that lifted the trophy.

Most significantly, Annett came on to score a last-minute try in the Greene King IPA Championship Final first leg with Bristol Rugby, which proved to be crucial in Warriors' promotion back to the Premiership after winning 59-58 on aggregate.

Annett cemented himself as first-choice hooker in Warriors’ first season back in the Premiership, playing 21 of the 22 games and scoring two tries in the process. His form was rewarded with a new contract in January 2016.

Annett continued as first-choice hooker at the start of the 2016/17 season and made his 50th appearance for the Club in November's Anglo-Welsh Cup victory over Bristol Rugby. However, he was restricted to just nine appearances during the season after a series of injuries.
