Chris Pennell set for Worcester Warriors comeback this weekend

Full-back Chris Pennell is set to make his comeback this weekend as Warriors face Brive in the European Challenge Cup at Sixways (kick-off 3pm).

Pennell, who has played 165 times for the Club, last featured in Warriors’ final game of the 2015/16 Aviva Premiership season against Saracens in May.

And ahead of his return this Saturday, the England international can’t wait to test himself against the French.

He said: “It’s been very frustrating to miss the start of the season with injury but now I’m desperate to get out there on the pitch.

“I’ve been cheering the boys on but it’s not the same when you want to be out there and helping your team so this weekend I’ll certainly be looking to put in a big shift.”

With a number of frontline players out injured in the early stages of the season, it has seen opportunities for youngsters such as Jamie Shillcock, who has impressed at full-back in Pennell’s absence.

And the Warriors centurion knows he will have to be at his best to try and cement his place in the starting line-up.

He explained: “Shilly and the other youngsters have really stepped up in the absence of some of us senior boys and they’ve been fantastic.

“Having been injured, I now have to try and get back to my best as the standard has really been set and it’s fantastic for the Club.

“We have shown that we have young players who are able to step up to the plate and that raises the bar across the board.

“It encourages everyone to play at their best because there’ll be someone on your heels chomping at the bit for their chance.”

Tickets are available for Saturday’s game from just £10 for Adults and £5 Juniors by clicking here, calling 01905 459309 or visiting the Ticket Office.
