Senatore set for Warriors bow after ban
9:30am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Sport
ARGENTINE ace Leonardo Senatore looks set to make his Worcester Warriors debut as they search for a priceless first win of the season on Friday night.
The number eight or flanker is available again after a seven-match ban for biting but next week will head off to play in internationals along with a string of other Warriors.
Director of rugby Dean Ryan revealed Senatore could “potentially” figure against Bath at Sixways (7.45pm) but admitted he was unsure exactly what to expect from the 29-year-old.
He said: “I haven’t seen him play.
“But he’s a got a real presence around the team. I think he’s going to be a great addition.
“It’s just about getting him into a system and that seems to be where we are every week because we have got new people, changes or injuries.
“There might be a couple of changes for Friday.
“I’m still not settled on what our 15 is and I don’t think we can afford to be.
“I don’t think enough people have put their hand up when given an opportunity so we still have to keep looking for the answers.”
Fijian centre Ravai Fatiaki returns from an ankle injury as bottom-of-the-table Warriors look to begin making up an eight-point gap on the teams above them in the Aviva Premiership.
With an improved attendance expected, helped by cheaper tickets, Ryan is calling on his players and the fans to make it a night to remember for Worcester.
He admitted: “If this game was about having 20,000 people and all our answers so then we can sort it all out, it would be great.”
Ryan added: “It’s a combination of everything, we need every supporter to get behind us.
“We need to understand how important it is to represent this club and that combination of things leads to performances.
“Everybody who turns up I’m sure wants to share in that, everybody who takes to the field I’m sure would want to represent themselves in that way.”
