DEPARTING Worcester Warriors scrum-half Jonny Arr is open to moving abroad as he looks to extend his playing career.

The Warriors legend, who is one of only four players to reach 200 appearances for the club, is plotting his next move after announcing his departure last month.

Worcester-born Arr had hoped to see out his playing days at Warriors but a contract failed to materialise.

Despite the blow the 30-year-old is keen to continue plying his trade on the pitch as he believes he has got “another couple of years at least” left in him.

“I have sat down and spoken to my partner and we are happy to explore all opportunities that come our way,” said Arr when asked whether he would consider joining a club overseas.

“It’s been great to remain in Worcester for so long and it is not a bad thing to get out there and see different parts of the world.

“If an offer like that does come my way then it would definitely be something we would consider.

“We will sit down now and look at any options that come in and then just see what the best fit is out there.

“Hopefully I can continue my rugby career for another couple of years at least.”

Arr has been on the fringes this season but played a key role in helping Warriors reach the quarter-finals of the European Challenge Cup and featured six times in the Gallagher Premiership.

“I am 30 now and in the grand scheme of things I have been very lucky injury-wise,” Arr said.

“It’s only been two or three seasons where I have struggled with injuries but I feel like that is well and truly behind me now.

“I am feeling in good shape and have done all season.

“I have stayed injury-free so the thought of hanging up my boots hasn’t really crossed my mind.”

Arr’s exit will end a 23-year association with the club.

The former Royal Grammar School Worcester pupil has played 217 games for Warriors and helped them gain promotion from the Championship on two occasions.

“I will take away so many great memories from this place,” said Arr who made his senior debut in 2007.

“I have met a whole host of characters and good people along the way.

“I have made many friends and am sure I will retain those for many years to come.

“There have been a few tough moments but it’s going to be great when all the dust settles to look back at my time here.

“I am really proud of what I have achieved at the club.”
