Best makes Cavaliers comeback at Sale Jets

Flanker Neil Best will make his playing comeback as Worcester Cavaliers face Sale Jets in the Aviva A League at Heywood Road tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

Best has missed the opening weeks of the season with a knee injury, but the former Ireland international is now back in contention and makes his return as the Cavaliers seek a first win of the season.

Hooker Ed Shervington and Number Eight Blair Cowan also both start as they continue their coembacks after appearing against Gloucester United last Monday at Sixways.

George Porter and Rob O’Donnell both play in the front row while Josh Watkins and Ben Howard are among the backs after returning from a training camp with England Under-20s last week.
