WORCESTER Warriors are bringing out the big guns for their Premiership Rugby Cup Final with London Irish on Tuesday as they seek to win their first ever top-flight trophy.

The likes of centre Ollie Lawrence and winger Duhan van der Merwe are expected to join skipper Ted Hill in the matchday squad as a near full-strength team is set to be announced on Monday.

Warriors have only ever been in one top-flight final, which was back in 2008 when they lost to Bath in the European Challenge Cup.

And, bar a British and Irish Cup win in 2015, that is their only experience of a showpiece event.

They have used 53 players throughout the competition so far but brought some more senior players into the squad for the semi-final win over Gloucester and they are going to continue that trend against London Irish at the Brentford Community Stadium on Tuesday.

Academy coaches Jonny Goodridge and Chris Morgan will once again be taking charge of the side for the big game, just like they have done throughout this tournament so far.

"You saw with our semi-final selection that we went a bit stronger there," said Goodridge.

"It will be much of the same for the final, a mix of youth and experience.

"But because we don't play for another three weeks after Tuesday and the fact we have a full squad to choose from, that will no doubt affect the selection.

"We have a clean bill of health across the squad at the moment.

"There are one or two long term injuries but we had well over two playing sides training today (Friday) so we have got a great group to choose from."

It is set to be a massive evening for the senior heads and the young guns.

There is a chance to write themselves into the history books at the club as being the first team to win a top-flight trophy and Goodridge explains that everyone is well aware of what is at stake.

"A lot of the younger guys are local guys, they have come through the academy anyway so they know the history of the club," added Goodridge.

"The guys that have been here for a longer time have instilled into the younger ones how big of an occasion this is for the club.

"But you don't need to hype it up too much, it's a cup final at the end of the day and everybody is incredibly excited."
