The Samoan international cemented his place in the side straight away and was a consistent player throughout the 2005/06 season, playing 23 league and cup games throughout the campaign. His performances and commitment was recognised by the Warriors coaching staff when they selected him as the Player of the Year, the award for which he picked up at the club’s end of season awards celebration.

Last season Rasmussen signed a new three-year deal, which will keep him at Sixways until 2010.

In 2012, Ramussen announced that he would leave Worcester Warriors and retire from Rugby.
