Ryan focused on making Sixways a fortress

Dean Ryan believes players and fans can ensure Sixways is a difficult place for visiting teams to play.

Warriors are set for their second Friday night clash of the season with the visit of Bath Rugby and, according to Ryan, his side need to make the most of their home advantage.

He said: “We will put everything into making Sixways a tough place to visit. We need every supporter to get behind us and the players need to understand how important it is to represent this club.

“That combination will lead to performances and I’m sure fans and players will all want to share in that.”

Warriors have slashed ticket prices for Friday’s game to try and get as many fans at the stadium to roar their side on.

And Ryan admits Friday’s clash will be another tough battle against one of the Aviva Premiership’s form sides.

He continued: “It will be huge for us if we can get a win against Bath. They are a side that has done a lot of rebuilding over the summer.

“Bath are built around a big pack and a young man at ten (George Ford) who is pretty good at moving it around the field. I’ll be surprised if that changes on Friday.”

Leonardo Senatore could make his debut in the clash and Ryan believes the arrival of Warriors’ three new Argentinian signings has boosted his side.

He added: “Not everyone loves losing but the morale is pretty good. The impetus of some new guys coming in gives us some energy because they’re new to the team and they are new personalities.

“Senatore has real presence around the team and I think he’s going to be a great addition. We’ve just got to get him into a system.”

Season Ticket holders will be able to buy extra seats anywhere in the stadium for £12.50 while non-Season Ticket holders can secure their place for £17.50. Junior supporters can watch the match for £5.
