The 34-year-old, who played 38 Tests for the Springboks, left the Bulls in 2013 to play for French side Montpellier.

He joined the Warriors in 2015 and has since become a stalwart for the English club.

“Worcester has become a home for me over the past three years and I’m really pleased to be staying,” Olivier told Worcester’s official website.

“I’ve made some great friends at the club, there’s a really good vibe about the place right now and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Warriors.”

Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons added: “Wynand is a consummate professional and having someone of his experience in the squad is vital.

“He has done a tremendous job in his three seasons at Sixways so far and is a fantastic role model for some of our upcoming youngsters.”
