WORCESTER Warriors have named their 41-man strong squad for tomorrow's pre-season friendly with Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens (2PM KO).

The two latest signings, George Merrick and Marc Thomas, will make their first appearances for the club after their moves from Clermont and Harlequins respectively.

There will also be a chance for four of Warriors' new academy signings with wing Harry Spencer, centre Seb Atkinson, fly-half Finn Smith and flanker Jack Forsythe being included.

Academy back-row forward Morgan Monks is set for his return to action having recovered from the injury that forced him to miss the latter part of last season but Worcester will be without a number of players to both injury and international duty.

The game will be played in four 30-minute quarters, with the second two quarters most likely to be used for the younger players to get a run out.
