Marco Mama (born 27 March 1991) is a Zimbabwe rugby union player who currently plays for Worcester Warriors in the Aviva Premiership.

Club career[edit]

Mama was initially registered with Bristol as part of the Elite Player Development Group before joining their senior academy in 2009. Originally, he joined local rivals Worcester Warriors on a season-loan in the 2015-16 season.[1] But, he signed a permanent deal with Worcester soon after, where he will officially join the club from the 2016-17 season.[2]

International career[edit]

Mama represented Zimbabwe U20s team through the 2010 and 2011 IRB Junior World Championship.[3] He was part of a RFU Championship XV team that defeated Canada 28-23 as part of their 2014 autumn tests, which was held at the Sixways Stadium in Worcester.[4][5]
