Tyack, 24, was due to join Warriors for the 2021/22 season but with two tightheads – Conor Carey (bicep) and Richard Palframan (dislocated thumb) – ruled out for the rest of this season he has arrived early at Sixways.
Tyack, who made one European Champions Cup appearance for Gloucester Rugby while on loan at the start of the season, trained for the first time at Sixways today and will be in contention for selection for Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership match against Leicester Tigers at Sixways.
Tyack, who began his rugby career at Truro, had spells with Launceston, St Ives, St Austell, Chinnor and Birmingham Moseley between two stints with the Pirates.
He has established a reputation as one of the top tightheads in the Championship and impressed with a powerful scrummaging performance in Pirates’ victory over Saracens in this season’s Championship opener at the Mennaye Field
