WORCESTER Warriors’ players and fans paid tribute to fly-half Ryan Lamb after announcing his retirement yesterday.

Lamb, 33, joined Warriors in February 2014 before memorably kicking the Sixways side back into the Premiership a year later.

The stand-off held his nerve to slot a conversion with the last kick of a dramatic Championship play-off final to beat Bristol 59-58 on aggregate.

He left Worcester in 2017 and spent the next two seasons at French outfit La Rochelle before calling it a day.


But Warriors’ supporters took to social media to hail Lamb’s contribution to the club.

“It's been a pleasure to watch you play for and against Worcester.

“You will always be a legend for THAT kick.

stephen rivett‏ (@stephenrivett) said: “You will always be remembered here at Worcester for that conversion!!! Top player, great career. Enjoy your retirement.

Mark Gibbs‏ (@markgibbs0) added: “Good luck, you’ll always be in our hearts for “that” kick and the celebration.”

Worcester’s players also praised Lamb who played for Gloucester, London Irish, Northampton Saints and Leicester Tigers prior to joining Warriors.

Hooker Niall Annett‏ (@NiallAnnett2) said: “Well done Lambo.

“Many a man has run a zombie line off you and got an ear full.

“Great career and one of the best characters I have met in the game.

“Story time with Lamby getting me through pre-season.

Fly-half Jamie Shillcock‏ (@JamieShillcock) said: “All the best Lamby! Still trying to get as good at the no look pass as you.”

Wing Perry Humphreys‏ (@Perry_Humphreys) said: “Congrats Lambo! Good luck for the future!”

Departing duo Jonny Arr and Josh Adams also congratulated Lamb on his 15-year professional playing career.

“Awesome shift mate,” said scrum-half Arr (@j_arr).

“Loved being a small part of it.”

Wing Adams‏ (@JoshAdams951) added: “Congrats on a top career mate.

“Good luck for the future.”
