Wing wonder Garvey makes return

Speedster Marcel Garvey returns to the fast lane of Guinness Premiership rugby as he makes his long awaited comeback in the rearranged league clash with Sale Sharks at Sixways Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Garvey is yet to play a competitive match for Warriors this season but has made a stunning return to full fitness after overcoming hip problems and will now make his first start of the campaign on the wing to add real firepower to the home side.

Lock Will Bowley is again named in the line-up after a try scoring show against Petrarca Rugby while back row dynamo Tom Wood is named on the replacements bench after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Ryan Powell is recalled to scrum half and Netani Talei to the back row as Director of Rugby Mike Ruddock makes a total of three changes from the team that won last weekend in Europe.

Supporters are advised that tickets purchased for the original date remain valid for the rearranged game. Tickets also remain on sale from 01905 454183 or online at
