FOLLOWING the reports on Sunday surrounding the possible signing of Gloucester Rugby's Willi Heinz, Warriors fans took to social media to have their say on Worcester's recruitment.

What was noticeable was that some think scrum half is not where the money should be spent so we have looked at three signings Warriors could make in key positions.

1. Amanaki Mafi - number 8 (currently at: NTT Communications Shining Arcs, Japan)

This is actually a player who I am told by a number of sources to be on the look for a new club and maybe even Worcester.

The Japanese back-row forward has been a crucial member of the incredibly exciting and promising Japan side who have shown in the past two World Cups how good they are.

Mafi is a marauding, athletic eight who can carry beyond the gain line and incredibly effective in the contact and he would be a perfect addition to this Worcester side.

Warriors currently have Cornell du Preez in that position and then sometimes Marco Mama and Matt Kvesic are used there but this season in particular, ball carrying has not been brilliant and is an area where Marco Mama himself admitted the side are trying to work on.

He is currently not registered for the Japan Top League which started last weekend as his club have said he is "not in condition", which would be a slight worry. But certainly a player to keep an ear out for.

2. Danilo Fischetti - prop (currently at: Zebre, Italy)

The Italian 23-year old prop has been linked with a move to the Premiership and he is supposedly very keen on a move out of Italy and England would be a desirable destination.

He is still a young man but has already eight caps for his country and has gained rave reviews over the last 12 months, including a few stand out performances during the Autumn Nations Cup.

Looking at him, he looks like short, stocky centre and incredibly lean for a prop but he certainly puts himself about and can be very effective over the ball at the breakdown.

He would be a great option as an impact player off the bench but also more than capable to rip it up from the start, a really promising talent.

3. Freddie Burns - fly-half (currently at: Shokki Shuttles, Japan)

Now most people will be well aware of Burns' qualities during his time with Leicester Tigers and Bath Rugby.

He is currently in Japan but it has been rumoured that he is wanting to return to the Premiership and whilst Tigers have been linked with him, it would not be out of the question for Worcester to throw their name into the ring for the 30-year old.

Jonathan Thomas said that the club were still in negotiations with a couple of players that were in their latter stages of their careers, in an attempt to build experience around a young Worcester squad.

A strong kicking game, the ability to take the ball to the line and with Billy Searle, Jamie Shillcock (both 23 years old) and academy star Fin Smith (18), Burns would act as an experienced head to help with their development, especially with Duncan Weir departing.

But also he's been there and done it in this league and that is what you could argue Warriors are looking for in a player to come in.
