Santiago Medrano will depart the Western Force at the end of the current Super Rugby Pacific campaign to join Worcester Warriors.
The Argentinian international prop will be linking up with the English Premiership side after two seasons with the Force.
Having joined from Jaguares last year, Medrano has built a reputation as a skilful and hard-working front rower who puts his body on the line each week.
Medrano said he relished his time in Western Australia.
“I’ve really enjoyed playing for the Force and feel that I’ve learned a lot as a player and as a person,” the Argentinian explained.
“I’d like to thank all my teammates, coaches, and staff for making my time here so memorable. “A special thanks to the Sea of Blue who gives us such great support every week and are the best crowd in Australia. I hope we cross paths again in the future.”
General Manager of Rugby Matt Hodgson thanked Medrano for his contributions to the club.
“Santiago has been a consistent performer who plays with the utmost pride and passion,” Hodgson said.
“Coming from Argentina he adapted swiftly and whole-heartedly bought in the Force culture. “He is a man that always puts the team first and on behalf of the entire organisation I wish him all the very best for the future.”
