More new Warriors faces to take on Cardiff Blues
SUMMER signing Ignacio Mieres is among the new faces who will make a first appearance for Worcester Warriors when they face Cardiff Blues in a pre-season warm-up game at Sixways tomorrow (3pm).
Mieres, a signing from Exeter Chiefs, is paired with Paul Hodgson at half-back as director of rugby Dean Ryan gives the second half of his squad the chance to shine after the midweek 29-18 win over Rotherham Titans.
Chris Pennell captains the team from full-back, while Tom Chapman, who impressed during the JP Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Series, is named on the wing along with Samoa international David Lemi.
Academy prospect Max Stelling and Josh Matavesi are in the centres.
Jeremy Becasseau and Mike Williams are part of a new-look Worcester pack, after appearances off the bench against Rotherham, and a strong back row sees the return of giant number eight Semisi Taulava alongside Richard de Carpentier and Sam Betty.
Warriors: Pennell (c); Chapman, Stelling, Matavesi, Lemi; Mieres, Hodgson; Becasseau, Shervington, Andress, Williams, Jones, de Carpentier, Betty, Taulava. Replacements: Seymour, Andrew, Murray, Schofield, Boyce, Su'a, Gray, Howard, Clarke.
