Tiff Eden keen to seize European chance for Worcester Warriors

Tiff Eden says he is ready to seize his opportunity after being named in the startling XV for Worcester Warriors’ European Rugby Challenge Cup clash with Zebre.

Eden starts at fly-half for the Warriors who will be looking for a slice of revenge when they entertain the Italians having lost the reverse fixture 28-7 back in November.

The 21-year-old is yet to turn out in an Aviva Premiership Rugby match this season and has only recently returned to action following a knee injury that sidelined him for four months.

But he says he is fit and ready for action after getting the nod and wants to stake his claim for a spot in the future.

“I’ve played one A League game so far but I feel fit and healthy and I am just excited to get out there and play,” he said.

“The injury had me out for three or four months which was quick frustrating but I am happy to be back and feeling good.

“They beat us last time we played them so we want to make sure we don’t let that happen again and we have done a lot of video analysis and identified areas we can exploit.

“There is a really good spirit about the club and our performances have been good in the Aviva Premiership Rugby.

“We look at that last game against Zebre and see a lot of things we could do better so I think we will be better placed to win this time.

“It’s a great chance for me to show what I can do and to get some experience and maybe force myself into the minds of the coaches for the rest of the season.”

With no LV= Cup this term, Eden knows this weekend’s clash is a perfect opportunity to get some valuable first XV experience.

But he says that he is learning every day from more experienced members of the squad and is determined to take every ounce of knowledge he can.

“With the likes of Tom (Heathcote) and Ryan (Lamb) around there is the chance to learn from people more experienced,” he added.

“It is really helpful to have people like that in the side and I am always looking to take from the experiences that they have had and develop my own game.

“This weekend is a chance for me to implement some of those lessons but I think you’ll see us as a team go back to the simple things and make sure we are doing those right.”
