Speaking ahead of the game, Steve Diamond said: "Worcester are coached well by Dean Ryan and he has recruited well during the summer. Last Friday, we saw not only how they can attack but also how they defended against Northampton Saints.

"Last Saturday's result was a huge wake-up call and the lads have been working hard on the training ground to make sure we are ready for Worcester."
