Tom Heathcote joined Warriors in the summer of 2015 from Scottish outfit Edinburgh Rugby and cemented his position as first choice fly-half in his first season with the Club.

After excelling in pre-season he continued his form into a memorable first game against Northampton Saints, where the Scotland international notched a last-minute drop-goal to give Warriors a dramatic victory.

The number ten went on to play 20 games in his first season and finished seventh in total Premiership points scored across the league with 143.

His second season at Sixways was disrupted by injury but, despite being restricted to nine appearances, Heathcote was given a new contract in April 2017.

Before his move to Sixways Heathcote featured regularly in the Guinness PRO 12 and European Challenge Cup during the 2014/15 campaign.

Heathcote rose through the ranks at Bath Rugby, making his debut for the Premiership high-flyers in 2011 after progressing through the Academy.

In 2013, he was shortlisted for the LV= Breakthrough Player Award after outstanding performances in the early stages of the competition.

The stand-off scored 375 in 53 appearances for Bath before moving to continue his development in Scotland.

Born in Inverness, Heathcote represented England through the age-groups before committing his international future to Scotland.

He received his first call-up to the senior Scotland squad in November 2012 and made his debut later that month in the Test match against Tonga.

Heathcote kicked eight points in Scotland A's win over England Saxons in 2013 before being selected for his country's RBS Six Nations squad.

He went on to make two starts for Scotland in the 2013 summer quadrangular tournament against Samoa and Italy.
