WORCESTER Jaguars will launch a senior side next year.

Started in 2016 as Pershore Black Swans, the rugby league club have now changed names.

Jaguars' open senior trial for those aged over 16 will be on Saturday, November 30, at Malvern's Dyson Perrins Academy from 11am until 2pm.

Jaguars' head coach is Alex Paynter with Stuart Hood president.

The England talent pathway club, who have linked up with West Yorkshire Super League side Castleford Tigers, will continue their category three Mercian Development Academy.

The Dyson Perrins-based academy have played two competitive games so far with defeats to Scotland under 16s and Hull under 16s.

The academy will next play Leigh Centurions under 16s at Leigh Miners in Greater Manchester on Saturday, December 7 (2pm).

Jaguars have ambitions of becoming a professional club and putting Worcester rugby league on the map.
