CENTRE Seb Atkinson will make his Premiership debut this Friday night when Worcester Warriors host reigning champions Harlequins at Sixways. 

Atkinson has made two appearances in the last two weeks off the bench for Worcester and he will partner the returning Oli Morris, who is one of four changes to the side that beat Bristol Bears last weekend.

Noah Heward replaces Jamie Shillcock, who sustained an ankle injury against Bristol, at full-back and will make his first appearance in almost four months having recovered from a fractured ankle earlier than expected.

Alex Hearle moved from centre to the left wing to replace Duhan van der Merwe who is back on Six Nations duty with Scotland this weekend.

There is one change in the pack where Club Captain Ted Hill returns having recovered from a sore back.

On the bench, Tom Howe is in line to make his 50th appearance for the club since he arrived at Sixways from Wasps in 2017.
