Worcester v Bristol lives stream: How to watch from anywhere

Winning is a habit. And while Worcester Warriors won their last Gallagher Premiership home game, 29-14 against Quins, they had lost an alrming ten league games on the bounce before that… And in their most recent outing, away to Chiefs, they were trounced 59-7. It’s time to discover that habit.

They will have full-back Melani Nanai returning to that cause, after he served a ban for a no-arms tackle on Jonny May in the loss to Gloucester on 15 August. There are a few other inuries to contend with, but captain Ted Hill will lead from the front and stalwart stars Nick Schonert and Anton Bresler will always dig in.

Bristol Bears too would like to return to winning ways. Still third in the league but only a point ahead of Wasps and just three ahead of Bath, they have lost the last two league outings on the spin. They were brushed aside by Sale last time out. They keep rotating, though, with boss Pat Lam making 13 changes to the team. Steven Luatua captains the visitors as star names come flooding back.

Will the likes of Charles Piutau, Semi Radradra, Kyle Sinckler and an electric bench prove the difference?

Worcester: Melani Nanai; Tom Howe, Ollie Lawrence, Francois Venter, Noah Heward; Duncan Weir, Francois Hougaard; Ethan Waller, Neil Annett, Nick Schonert, Anton Bresler, Graham Kitchener, Ted Hill (captain), Matt Kvesic, Cornell du Preez.

Replacements: Isaac Miller, Callum Black, Richard Palframan, Andrew Kitchener, Matt Cox, Gareth Simpson, Billy Searle, Ashely Beck.

Bristol: Charles Piutau; Luke Morahan, Semi Radradra, Siale Piutau, Henry Purdy; Callum Sheedy, Harry Randall; Max Lahiff, Bryan Byrne, Kyle Sinckler, Ed Holmes, Chris Vui, Steven Luatua (captain), Dan Thomas, Nathan Hughes.

Replacements: Harry Thacker, Jake Woolmore, John Afoa, Joe Joyce, Ben Earl, Andy Uren, Ioan Lloyd, Piers O’Conor.
