Richard Hill has praised the impact that summer arrival Sam Betty has made at Warriors – with the back row again down to start at Adams Park against Wasps on New Year’s Day (kick-off 3pm).
Betty made the step up to the Aviva Premiership from the RFU Championship and Cornish Pirates at the end of last season.
The flanker has quickly settled into life at Sixways and made the number six jersey his own in recent months with a number of eye catching and aggressive displays.
Hill said: “Sam is very combative and that is superb. He is also beginning to develop his attacking game.
“He came here known as a defensive player and he is definitely worth his place in the side at the moment.
“When you pick the team at the moment you put Sam Betty in fairly quickly. That is all credit to him.
“He came here from Cornish Pirates and made that big step up. Now he is competing with the big boys and going very well.”
