9 Van Breda – produced a string of superb touchfinders, converted five of his seven kicks at goal, scored Worcester’s opening try and his cheeky grubber created Morris’ late score.

7 Howe – made a few forays into Jets’ half only to be withdrawn at the break, perhaps with Saturday’s Premiership clash with Sale in mind.

8 O Morris – another impressive showing from the summer recruit who was a real threat with ball in hand, linked up brilliantly with Scully in midfield and crossed late on.

8 Scully – grew in confidence as the game wore on and was at the heart of everything, defending his channel well and was involved in the build-up to several tries.

8 David – underlined his burgeoning potential with a peerless performance under the high ball, a strong running game and a well-taken try to boot.

8 Simpson – oozed class at fly-half with sharp, accurate passing, well-executed kicks and popped up in support of Kitto to score a crucial try just before the interval.

8 Kitto – was a leader on the field as he audibly barked out instructions to his team-mates and produced a stunning, scything run to set up Simpson for a score.

6 Bower – was part of a starting front row unit that were outmuscling their opponents in the first half only for the referee to see things differently and award Sale penalties.

9 MILLER – boosted his hopes of a recall to the first team with an outstanding all-action display as he tackled hard, seamlessly slotted into the back row and got on the end of a driving maul to score. My man of the match.

7 J Morris – did not get the rub of the green from officials at scrum-time but was a powerful addition to the pack and helped move the ball across the line for Cavaliers’ first try.

7 Clegg – following his try-scoring showing for Warriors in Russia, the lock put together another solid 66-minute shift as he gained ground with strong carries and got the pack moving.

8 Scott – like his second-row colleague, the academy ace produced a tireless performance as he ran the lineout superbly, defended aggressively and teed up McNab for a try.

7 Monks – another young forward with great potential that is grasping every opportunity that comes his way as he covered plenty of ground and showed nice touches in attack.

7 Cox – was a go-to ball-carrier for Cavaliers as he often found himself charging forward on the wing and teed up van Breda for the opener but was sin-binned for an off-the-ball scuffle.

6 Dodd – was not at the forefront like he was in Russia two weeks ago but captained the team well before leaving the field at the start of the second half.
