Derrick Appiah Rugby prop
Meet Derrick Appiah – 185cm, 118kg and without question probably one of Italy’s most promising forwards in Rugby today.
The Italy Under-20 prop this week signed with English Rugby Union club Worcester Warriors in a move that Appiah said “is a great opportunity to become even stronger.”
The 20-year-old was a regular for Italy u20s during last year’s RBS Six Nations campaign.
He was instrumental in helping the Azzurri to a third-place finish in Pool A of the IRB Junior World Championship defeating Argentina 29-26 along the way.
Appiah, who can play loose-head or tight-head, has featured for Mogliano in Italy’s National Championship of Excellence and for Parma and Modena.
