WARRIORS and Bristol have named strong line-ups for tomorrow's Premiership clash at Sixways (Friday, 6pm).

The hosts welcome back Melani Nanai from a three-match suspension following his sending off for a challenge on Gloucester’s Jonny May three weeks ago, coming straight back into the starting XV.

Nanai, who displaces Chris Pennell, is the only change to the side that defeated Harlequins as Warriors chase back-to-back home league wins.

Back-row forwards GJ van Velze, who will miss the rest of the season having dislocated a shoulder at Exeter, and Sam Lewis, who has been ruled out with a head injury, miss out. 

Hooker Isaac Miller and Wales international centre Ashley Beck are among the replacements, while England flanker Ted Hill resumes the role of captain in the continued absence of team captain Matt Moulds.
