Wilhelm Van der Sluys set for Worcester Warriors debut at Wasps

Warriors will hand debuts to trialist Wilhelm van der Sluys and Academy youngster Afeafe Haisila Lokotui when they travel to the Ricoh Arena to face Wasps in the Anglo-Welsh Cup this Sunday (kick-off 3pm).

Van der Sluys, who joined the Club earlier this week, is straight into the second row while Haisila Lokotui will make his bow on the wing.

Meanwhile, Sam Lewis makes his long-awaited return from injury having not featured since scoring a hat-trick against London Scottish in the Championship semi-final second leg in May 2015.

Sam Betty also returns to the back row alongside Lewis and Matt Cox.

Tom Biggs makes his comeback on the wing, while Josh Adams moves to full-back following his impressive two-try showing last weekend against Bristol Rugby.

Tom Heathcote skippers the side at fly-half with Max Stelling and Andy Short in the centre, while Michael Dowsett keeps his place at scrum-half following his try on debut last Friday.

In the pack, Derrick Appiah makes his first start for the Club in a front row with Jack Singleton and Mike Daniels. Andrew Kitchener partners Van der Sluys in the second row.

Warriors Under 18 youngster Alex Hearle, who studies at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College, could make his Club bow from the bench.
