Jonathan Thomas looking to build Sixways momentum

Worcester Warriors host Wasps on Saturday 4 December (kick-off 3pm) in December’s only home Gallagher Premiership match and a win would be the third successive victory at Sixways.

Head Coach Jonathan Thomas says he is looking for his side to continue on an upward curve after some impressive performances in recent weeks.

He said: “We’re happy with the progress we’ve made in the last few weeks. I think the Sale Sharks game was the turning point, it was a good team display. We were physical and showed a lot of commitment in that game.

“Consistency is always the aim, and Wasps is a derby game, so we’re really excited about seeing an entertaining game against some really good players.

“December is always a good month for rugby with people turning out to watch games over the festive season so it’s a challenge for us to inspire our existing supporters but also attract new supporters.”

Warriors Women are also in action as part of our double-header on Saturday and Thomas believes the momentum created at Sixways in recent weeks will be good for the women’s game.

Thomas continued: “It was fantastic to have an England Women’s international fixture at Sixways, and it was just an amazing day for the Warriors family with Lydia Thompson scoring two tries on her 50th cap.

“We’ve talked about the Warriors family and how we’re aligned and collaborating as men’s, women’s, and academy teams so what is going on behind the scenes is really positive for the club.

“I think it’s exciting for our supporters to have a derby game against Wasps followed by the Women playing Exeter who are both good sides. It’s going to be an awesome day at the club and really encourage everyone to get along to watch both games.”
