TEAM NEWS | O’Callaghan to lead Warriors against Russians

Donncha O’Callaghan will lead Warriors in their final European Challenge Cup game of the 2016/17 campaign against Enisei-STM at Sixways this Saturday (kick-off 2pm).

The British & Irish Lion is one of five changes to the starting line-up which faced Brive last weekend, with Ben Te’o being named in the side before he heads away for training with England ahead of the RBS 6 Nations.

Teenager Jamie Shillcock returns to the side at fly-half while Sam Betty gets the nod in the back row in place of Marco Mama who has a tight hamstring.

Val Rapava Ruskin will also start after his tryscoring efforts from the bench last weekend in France.

A neck injury picked up in a collision last Saturday means Jonny Arr is out while Sam Ripper-Smith comes into the replacements as Warriors look to finish the competition on a high.
