Worden, 26, is set to debut for the Arrows senior team in 2022 following his second-round selection in the 2021 MLR Collegiate Draft.
The 6’3″, 265lb prop has been plying his trade with the University of British Columbia for the last three years, recently helping to guide the Thunderbirds to a third-place finish (4-1-1 record) in the inaugural Coastal Cup competition held this past summer and autumn.
Worden is a graduate of the British Columbia Bears senior men’s provincial program, represented Canada at the 2015 World Rugby Under-20 Trophy in 2015, and played his grassroots rugby with Burnaby Lake. He also gained experience in the southern hemisphere while playing for College Rifles and the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
The front row stalwart’s inclusion in the senior roster doubles the New Brunswick tally on the Arrows, with Worden linking up with fellow prop and Sussex native Cole Keith.
