Humphreys to make Cavaliers comeback

Warriors wing Perry Humphreys will make his comeback from an ankle for Cavaliers in Monday’s Premiership Rugby Shield match against Wasps A at Sixways (kick-off 7.30pm).

Humphreys has not played since he suffered an ankle injury in the Gallagher Premiership victory over Bath in January but he recently return to full training.

Humphreys is the only change to the back division that impressed in last week’s win against Northampton Wanderers with the bonus point moving them joint second with Northampton in the Northern Conference. Cavaliers play top-of-the-table Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park on April 22.

In the pack Matt Cox and Carl Kirwan come into the back row. Warriors Under-18s player Morgan Monks, who caught the eye on his Cavaliers debut last week, moves from blindside flanker to second row to partner James Scott as Andrew Kitchener is unavailable having played as a replacement in the Premiership match at Wasps on Saturday.

There are four guest players among the replacements including Loughborough Students back-row forward Max Hill, the brother of Warriors and England flanker Ted, and Stourbridge centre Luke Veebel who scored the winning try last week.

Admission to Cavaliers matches is free for Warriors Season Ticket Holders and juniors, £7.50 for others.
