Bristol Rugby Team News against Worcester Warriors

Bristol Rugby go in search of a second successive victory in the Aviva Premiership when they visit Worcester Warriors on Sunday (3pm KO).

Mark Tainton keeps faith with the majority of the side that overcame Bath at Ashton Gate last weekend.

Bristol make only one change to the starting line-up as Anthony Perenise (hamstring) is replaced by Gaston Cortes.

Tainton said: “There’s been plenty of physicality and intent in our preparations leading into this important game at Sixways – we’re in a good place and the guys selected are looking forward to getting out there.

“The key for us is to back up last week’s performance with another committed display. We have prepared well and know we will be supported by a noisy travelling contingent.”

Jack Wallace returns to the 23-man squad on the replacements bench in place of Jordan Williams.
