Worcester Warriors have announced that Australian fly-half Jono Lance will be returning to the Club ahead of the 2018/19 season on a two-year contract.
The playmaker recently signed a deal to play for his old side Queensland Reds but will make the switch back to Warriors following the conclusion of the current Super Rugby season.
A two-time Super Rugby winner, with the Reds in 2011 and Waratahs in 2014, Lance is an experienced number ten who quickly became a fan favourite at Sixways during his short-term spell.
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.
The 27-year-old, who played for Western Force in last year’s Super Rugby, also starred for Perth Spirit in their 2016 title-winning National Rugby Championship campaign before being called up to the Wallabies touring squad.
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 the upcoming Super Rugby campaign but I’m also hugely excited about coming back to Sixways next 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.”
