Niall Annett

7th May 1991 1.85m/107kg Hooker

Niall’s tremendous leadership skills have led to him captaining representative teams at various levels, including the Ireland U20 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.

He added another cap in the PRO12 trip to Munster in May 2012.

In 2014, he was called up to the Barbarians squad to play against Leicester Tigers.

Annett signed for Worcester Warriors where he played a key role in his first season at the Club, making 22 appearances, as Warriors secured promotion back to the Aviva Premiership at the first time of asking.

Annett was also part of the squad which won the British & Irish Cup that season, and also helped Worcester Cavaliers reach their first ever A League final.

He then played in all but one of Warriors’ 22 Premiership games back in the top flight in 2015/16 as he cemented his spot in the first-team.

The 2016/17 season saw the former Ulster man take his appearance tally for the Club to 52 before unfortunate injuries kept him sidelined, he is expected to return to action in April 2018.

In January 2018 he signed a new deal with the club that will see him remain at the Premiership for until the end of the 2018/19 season.

April 2019 saw him sign a new one-year contract with Worcester having made 70 first team appearances for the club.
