STAR signing Melani Nanai is set to be a part of a much-changed Worcester Warriors side that will take on Bath at The Rec on Saturday (3pm).

The Samoan-born ace is into his seventh week at Sixways following his arrival from Super Rugby outfit Blues.

And director of rugby Alan Solomons is now looking forward to seeing Nanai who can play at full-back or on the wing make his Warriors debut in the Premiership Cup clash.

“Melani's fit and available," Solomons said.

"He has not had a game yet so he is definitely going to play.

“It will be good to see him in action.

“He has had plenty of time to settle in.

“He is a really nice man and has gelled really well with the other players. I am positive about him. He is a class player.”

Solomons confirmed fit-again back rower Marco Mama would also go up against Bath.

Mama has not featured since being rushed to hospital in Oxford after the win over Gloucester in late April.

The 28-year-old was diagnosed with compartment syndrome – a condition that causes bleeding in the muscles – and had to undergo a series of operations.

“Marco is absolutely fine,” Solomons said.

“That injury came near the end of last season, so he has been out for a long time but he is fit and ready to go.”

Warriors put eight tries past Leicester Tigers in a 57-23 thrashing at Sixways last weekend but Solomons says he will ring the changes.

This means that the likes of scrum-half Francois Hougaard, fly-half Duncan Weir and tighthead prop Nick Schonert could make their first outings of the campaign.

“Virtually every senior player that is available will play in the first two games,” Solomons said.

“That gives everybody a fair chance to compete for a place and get game-time under their belt.

“Then we will review it and go from there.”

Asked whether he would select a totally different starting 15, Solomons said: “Yes.

“The next lot of guys have to get a chance to play so now they are going to get their opportunity.”
