Worcester's director of rugby John Brain has signed a two-year contract extension which will keep him at Sixways until 2008.
Brain's original deal was due to expire at the end of the current season but chairman Cecil Duckworth was anxious to keep on board the man who guided Worcester into the Premiership and kept them there.
"I am delighted John will be with the club for at least three more years and, I hope, many more," said Duckworth.

"I am very confident he can build on what we have already achieved which is very significant. I am also sure that all our supporters and players will welcome this news."
Worcester made an immediate impression on the Premiership last season, not only in avoiding relegation but claiming a few notable scalps on the way to finishing ninth in their maiden campaign.
They secured their top flight status with a thrilling final day victory over Northampton Saints.
And despite the surprise departure of head coach Andy Keast in the summer - he was replaced by Australian Anthony Eddy - Worcester have started this campaign well and lie fifth in the Premiership after a draw with Gloucester and wins over London Irish, Saracens and Leeds.
The Warriors opened their European Challenge Cup campaign with a 36-18 win over Montpellier on Saturday.
