Perry Humphreys to start against Newcastle

Warriors have made two late changes to their matchday squad for this evening’s rearranged Gallagher Premiership match against Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park.

Perry Humphreys comes into the starting XV on the left wing in place of Duhan van der Merwe who has failed a fitness test on a sore neck.

Tom Howe, who scored two tries in last week’s Premiership Rugby Cup win over Bristol Bears, joins the matchday squad as a replacement, taking the place of Oli Morris on the bench.
