Warriors in opposition in Championship match

Warriors’ team-mates will again find themselves as opponents in Saturday’s Greene King IPA Championship match between Jersey Reds and Cornish Pirates at the Stade Santander International.

Full-back Scott van Breda will start for Jersey with lock James Scott and back-row forward Matti Williams on the bench while Will Butler has been named in the centre for Pirates.

All four are playing Championship rugby on loan deals but van Breda will make his move to Jersey, from whom he joined Warriors in 2018, a permanent one for next season.

Loosehead prop Kai Owen is also in Championship action on Saturday and has been named as a replacement for Coventry for their match against Richmond at the Athletic Ground.

Owen joined Coventry on loan last month and made his first competitive appearance for them off the bench against Jersey two weeks ago.
