Three changes for Warriors to face Tigers

Three changes for Warriors to face Tigers

Head Coach Carl Hogg makes three changes to the Warriors starting line-up for Saturday’s visit to Welford Road to face Leicester Tigers in the Aviva Premiership (kick-off 3pm).

Dean Hammond returns to the side on the wing, while fly-half Ryan Lamb and hooker Jaba Bregvadze are handed starting spots.

Meanwhile, Ben Te’o returns to the squad among the replacements and there is also a place for hooker Matti Williams on the bench, who could be set for his Warriors debut.

Hogg said: “Off the back of a good result on Sunday we’re looking forward to playing Leicester.

“Welford Road is a great place to go. It’s a place you want to puff your chest out, and to go and play and express yourself as an individual and as a team.

“It’s a difficult place to go but we go there with great confidence off the back of the weekend and aspects we’ve shown in periods of games in the first few weeks.”
