DIRECTOR of rugby Alan Solomons has made three changes to Worcester Warriors’ starting line-up ahead of Sunday’s trip to Leicester Tigers in the Gallagher Premiership (3pm).

Jack Singleton, Nick Schonert and Anton Bresler all start as Warriors look to replicate last season’s performance at Tigers when they came away with a bonus-point 31-27 win.

Singleton will get his first start of the season while Schonert recovers from concussion to line up alongside Callum Black in the front row.

Bresler partners Pierce Phillips in the second row to make his first start of the season.

GJ van Velze leads the side from the back row next to Sam Lewis and Marco Mama.

The Warriors back-line remains unchanged from the 23-20 home defeat to Newcastle Falcons while in the replacements 19-year-old academy forward Ted Hill could make his Premiership debut from the bench.

Graham Kitchener returns from injury to make his first appearance of the season for Tigers against his former club at Welford Road.

The lock has recovered from a hip injury to replace the suspended Will Spencer, another Worcester old boy, in the only change to the forward pack from Sunday's 41-35 defeat at Wasps.

There are two changes in the backs where Jordan Olowofela and Jonah Holmes come in for Telusa Veainu and Adam Thompstone.

Warriors: Pennell; Heem, Venter, Mills, Adams; Weir, Hougaard; Black, Singleton, Schonert, Bresler, Phillips, Mama, Lewis, van Velze. Replacements: Taufete’e, Bower, Milasinovich, Barry, Hill, Heaney, Lance, Beck.

Tigers: Olowofela; Holmes, Tuilagi, Owen, May; Ford, Youngs; Bateman, Youngs, Cole, Williams, Kitchener, Denton, Thompson, Kalamafoni. Replacements: Stevens, Feao, Cortes, Wells, Lewis, White, Ford, Eastmond.
