CENTRE Francois Venter will make his return to the starting line-up this weekend for Worcester Warriors' trip to Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership on Saturday.

The South African has recovered from the calf injury he sustained at Leicester Tigers 12 weeks ago and comes straight back into start in place of Ashley Beck who has been ruled out by a sore knee.

There is a reshuffle in the back-row as Sam Lewis gets a rare start after also recovering from injury, whilst captain Ted Hill starts at number eight and Kyle Hatherell plays six.

Joe Batkey moves into the second-row and there are five more changes to the side that started in Lyon with Scotland international prop Murray McCallum, who impressed off the bench last week, named at loosehead.

Will Chudley and Billy Searle form a new half-back partnership with Perry Humphreys recalled on the right wing.

Tighthead prop Jack Owlett, who joined Warriors from Wasps last summer, is in line to face his former club off the bench.

Lock Andrew Kitchener is also named as a replacement having recovered from the head injury he sustained at London Irish eight weeks ago.
