FUTURE Worcester Warrior Duhan van der Merwe has been named in the 36-man touring party for the British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa this July.

The Scottish giant winger was today revealed by Lions Chairman Jason Leonard as one of six back three players in the squad, which includes former Worcester try-scoring machine, Josh Adams.

The Welsh winger enjoyed a hugely successful time at Sixways, made 59 appearances for Warriors and scored a whopping 34 tries, making him a firm favourite during his four years with the club.

Van der Merwe will officially become a Warriors player on July 1, after agreeing to a move from Edinburgh back in January and will therefore be Worcester's second ever Lion after Ben Te'o became the first in 2017.
