Worcester Warriors have announced that fly-half Jono Lance will return to Sixways next season.
After a short-term contract earlier this season that proved hugely successful, Worcester have confirmed Lance will return to the Warriors for the 2018/19 season.
The 27-year-old is currently playing for the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby and will return to the Premeirship at the culmination of the 2019 Southern Hemisphere season.
Lance made the move to Sixways in October, featuring eight times in the Blue and Gold, landing 26 points from the tee and establishing himself as a first-team regular.
Lance said: "Although I was only at Sixways for a couple of months, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Worcester.
"I’m fully focused on helping the Reds do well in this season’s Super Rugby but I’m also hugely excited about coming back to Sixways in the summer.
"I made a lot of friends back in England and want to test myself in the Premiership against some of the best players in the world."
Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons added: "Jono made a significant impact in a short space of time at Sixways. We are over the moon that a player of his quality has decided to join us ahead of next season and we’re looking forward to having him back at the club.
"He is a talented individual with a wealth of Super Rugby experience and that will be of great benefit to some of our young upcoming players."
