Former Saints prop Euan Murray is back in the Aviva Premiership after leaving Newcastle to join Worcester Warriors.
The Glasgow-born front row departed Northampton in 2010 after making 29 appearances during a two-year stay at the club.
He lost his place in the first team to Brian Mujati as the South African emerged as one of the best tightheads in the English game.
And Murray’s decision not to play on Sundays due to his devout Christian beliefs also hindered his chances of a prolonged spell in the first team.
He eventually left to join the Falcons, but they were relegated from the top flight last season and Murray has spent the past two months on loan at French Top 14 side Agen.
But the 32-year-old is now back in the Premiership and he admits he’s relishing the move to Sixways.
“I’m really excited about getting involved with the Warriors,” said Murray. “I have done a fair bit of research and I realise that the club is definitely going in the right direction.
“It’s an impressive team-sheet so I am looking forward to starting at Sixways.”
