HOOKER Ed Shervington and number eight Blair Cowan are both set to launch their comebacks as Worcester Cavaliers face Northampton Wanderers in the Aviva 'A' League at Sixways tonight (7.30pm).

Impressive full-back Ben Howard is part of a young and dynamic back-line that includes England under 20 international Josh Watkins.
