Warriors team-mates in opposition this weekend

Warriors’ team-mates Joe Richardson and Lewis Holsey will be on opposing sides of the scrum when Coventry take on Hartpury in the Championship at the Butts Park Arena on Saturday.

Hooker Richardson has been named as a replacement by Coventry with loosehead Holsey, another member of the Three Pears Warriors Academy, on Hartpury’s bench.

Richardson and Holsey are both playing Championship rugby on dual registrations to give them valuable experience of senior rugby between their commitments with Warriors.

Three more Warriors players will be in action in National Two North on Saturday with full-back Tobi Wilson in Stourbridge’s starting XV for their home match against Chester at Stourton Park.

Wilson’s last match was his Warriors debut in the Premiership Rugby Cup win over Gloucester Rugby two weeks ago.

Flanker Jack Forsythe, who also made his Warriors debut against Gloucester, has been named alongside lock Cheick Kone as replacements for Luctonians against Tynedale at Mortimer Park.
