TEAM NEWS | Warriors make two changes for Wasps encounter

Perry

Warriors have made two changes to the starting line-up ahead of Sunday’s Aviva Premiership clash with Wasps at Sixways (kick-off 3pm).

Perry Humphreys returns to the side while giant lock Pierce Phillips is set for his first start for the Club as Warriors look to kick-off their home campaign with a win.

Humphreys replaces Dean Hammond on the wing while Phillips steps into the second row for the injured Will Spencer (ankle), meaning Academy graduate Christian Scotland-Williamson is added to the replacements.

Josh Adams keeps his place at full-back after scoring in the season opener at Newcastle Falcons last weekend and is joined by Bryce Heem and Humphreys in the back three.

England and British & Irish Lions star Ben Te’o starts in the centres alongside Jackson Willison while Tom Heathcote and Jonny Arr form the half-back combination.

Ryan Bower, Jack Singleton and Nick Schonert start in the front row while skipper Donncha O’Callaghan partners Phillips in the second row.

Matt Cox, Sam Lewis and GJ van Velze maintain their spots in the back row while young utility back Jamie Shillcock is named among the replacements.
