WASPS boss Dai Young has described Saturday's Premiership visitors Warriors as "one of the best Worcester teams I've seen for a long time".

The director of rugby's praise for the Sixways side comes ahead of a crunch clash between the two at Coventry's Ricoh Arena (3pm).

Young said: “It is a big game for both teams and there are four big ones coming after it too. We’re getting to a point in the season where they are all pressure games.

"The pressure and what’s at stake will have an impact and hopefully a positive one.

"The players are used to playing under pressure whether it’s at the top or the bottom or trying to get in the top four or top six.

"We’re under no illusions of the task that’s at hand.

“We’re going to have to play some really good stuff as they’re a good team.

"It’s probably one of the best Worcester teams I’ve seen for a long time.”

“We owe our supporters a win at the Ricoh.

"We haven’t repaid that loyalty and faith but first and foremost we want to do it for ourselves.”
