Andy Williams has promised to continue help develop the talented cordon of scrum halves at Sixways even if it jeopardises his place in the Worcester team.
The former Wales international was brought to Sixways by Richard Hill as much for his excellent reputation of working with younger players as for his undoubted game management skills.
The 29-year-old can often be found staying behind after first team sessions have finished to work with academy products Louis Silver and Ollie Frost, even though he could be helping a rival for his first XV shirt.
Former Moseley-man Williams has shared game-time with rising star Jonny Arr so far this season although he is expected to start at Billesley Common this weekend.
But he is taking the longer term view of his role with the promotion favourites and is keen to pass on his vast experience.
“I will never be selfish. That’s not me and it won’t be me,” Williams said.
“I have not been brought up that way I will always help a youngster that wants to be helped.
“I will go beyond what I am asked to do.
“I probably annoy the conditioners because I want to do extra passing and extra kicking because I still want to improve.
“If the likes of Ollie, Jonny and Louis want me to help them, then I will do it willingly because they are helping me.
“I would stay out and do extras anyway.
“To have players like that push you gets you going every day.
“I am only 29, I want to be the best here, I want to be No.1 and whatever they do I will push myself harder.
“It’s good to have that competition and that they are driving you to improve and make sure you are on top of your game.
“I don’t think Hilly is sure of his first XV yet so everything is up for grabs.
“At Bath Jon Callard used to tell me don’t come off the training field until your opposite number has left.
“I’ve never forgotten that and carry it with me.”
Williams has played five games – two starts and three as sub – for Worcester so far and has been pulling the strings when Hill’s stuttering side have been at their best.
His knowledge of the Billesley conditions will be vital this weekend: “Going there will be a right battle.
“If the wind is up it can be a game of two halves.
“I know from my time there you have got to be wise how you play – especially if you are going up that slope.
“That bottom corner is a tough place to get out of.”
