Looks like there are still quite a few conversations and decisions to be made before the squad fo next season is finalised.

I am sure what is happening at Saracens will come into play now that we all know what punishment they have received so far

I would still consider retaining Jono Lance to play at 12 outside Weir and Searle, especially how Millsy has played this season so far.

WARRIORS director of rugby Alan Solomons remained tight lipped on the future of Jono Lance following a successful swoop for Billy Searle.

The Wasps fly-half will head to Worcester in the summer to vie for the number-10 jersey which Scotland international Duncan Weir currently makes his own.

With Weir contracted until the summer of 2021 and Searle drafted in, inevitable questions about Lance’s future have followed with his deal set to expire.

Solomons declined to reveal whether talks had taken place with the Australian ace who has played two full Premiership matches this season alongside another 80 minutes across four stints as a replacement.

“Billy comes in as a fly-half but there is competition, which is what we want across the board,” said Solomons.

“I think it is good for us, it increases our strength in depth which is only a positive.”

Asked if he had spoken to Lance about his future, Solomons replied: “We haven’t finalised the composition of our squad.

"We have players that are flexible and can play in various positions – Shilly (fly-half Jamie Shillcock) played full-back against Saracens.

“Jono is a good bloke. He has played well for us and will continue to do so, I have no doubt.”
