Prop Sourgens set for Sixways start

Summer signing Olivier Sourgens will get his first Sixways Stadium start as Worcester Warriors face Ulster Rugby in pre-season on Friday night (kick-off 7.30pm).

French powerhouse prop Sourgens and fellow newcomer Adam Black both start in the front row as Director of Rugby Mike Ruddock names a strong team to face Magners League opposition.

Ryan Powell will start at scrum half and Calum MacRae, a recruit from Edinburgh Rugby this week, joins Alex Grove in midfield.

Pat Sanderson will skipper the side in the back row alongside James Collins and Tom Wood.

Tickets are still available for the pre-season fixture with Ulster Rugby by calling the Sixways Box Office TODAY on 01905 454183.
