CHRIS Pennell will make his comeback from injury tonight as Worcester Cavaliers host Northampton Wanderers in the Premiership Rugby A League (7.30pm).

The full-back, who has overcome a quad problem, starts ni a back three which includes Ben Howard and Tom Howe.

Scrum-half Michael Dowsett and centre Max Stelling will also return to action after lengthy lay-offs.

Sam Olver, who kicked 16 points in last year’s A League final to win it for Northampton, starts against his former club at fly-half.

In the pack, Birmingham Moseley’s Jonah Boyce joins Matti Williams and Warriors academy prop Joe Morris in the front row while Justin Clegg and Andrew Kitchener start in the second row.

Ted Hill, Huw Taylor and Tom Dodd get the nod in the back row while there is a return to the club for James Tyas, who is named on the bench.
