Monday Night Rugby – Cowan and Shervs return

Hooker Ed Shervington and Number Eight Blair Cowan are both set to launch their comebacks as Worcester Cavaliers face Northampton Wanderers in the Aviva A League at Sixways Stadium tonight (kick-off 7.30pm).

Cowan and Shervington have both missed the opening weeks of the Aviva Premiership campaign, but are named in the starting line-up as the Cavaliers look to record a first win of the season in the competition.

Shervington returns in a powerful front row that also includes George Porter and Rob O’Donnell while Cowan is named in a back row alongside James Freeman and Will Brock.

Impressive full back Ben Howard is part of a young and dynamic back line that includes England Under-20 international Josh Watkins.

Supporters are advised that entry to tonight’s game is FREE for Season Ticket and Debenture holders. All other entry is with a suggested donation to the Warriors Community Foundation.
