Ten changes for Warriors ahead of Cup clash

Warriors have made ten changes to the starting line-up ahead of this Saturday’s Anglo-Welsh Cup clash with Exeter Chiefs at Sixways (kick-off 3pm).

Only Dean Hammond, Jackson Willison, Jamie Shillcock, Darren Barry and Matt Cox keep their starting places from last weekend’s European Challenge Cup outing in France, while a number of senior players return to the side.

Josh Adams and David Denton, who were recently picked for international duty for Wales and Scotland duty respectively ahead of next month’s NatWest 6 Nations, are both named in the side.

Adams joins Hammond and Tom Howe in a pacey back three while Jackson Willison is partnered by Ryan Mills in the centre.

Francois Hougaard is recalled to start at scrum-half alongside Shillcock at stand-off.

Ethan Waller, Jack Singleton and Gareth Milasinovich get the nod in the front row with skipper Donncha O’Callaghan and Barry in the second row.

Denton is joined by Sam Lewis and Cox in the back row while new signing Anton Bresler could be set for his debut from the bench.

Warriors sit four points behind first-placed Northampton Saints in Pool 3, with the top side from each pool going through to the semi-finals.
