Worcester v Gloucester live stream: How to watch Premiership rugby online from anywhere
Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership action kicks off with Gloucester travelling to Worcester for a lunchtime kick-off – and both teams will be looking to end losing runs.
Worcester haven’t won in the league since beating London Irish in December – that’s a run of six successive defeats – while Gloucester have lost their last five Premiership matches.
When they met at Kingsholm back in December, the scores were 3-3 at half-time before Gloucester ran in five second-half tries, including two from speedster Louis Rees-Zammit, to win 36-3.
Yet much has changed since then – Gloucester have a new coaching team, headed up by George Skivington, for a start.
England wing Jonny May is back in Gloucester colours after a three-year stint at Leicester while Jack Singleton makes his debut at hooker, with Logo Mulipola, Jack Stanley and Matt Garvey all set to make their first appearances for the club from the bench.
As for Worcester, Ted Hill will become the youngest-ever Warriors captain when he leads the team out at Sixways tomorrow aged just 21 years and 142 days.
Former Wasps fly-half Billy Searle will make his Worcester debut while Matt Kvesic returns to Warriors colours after a seven-year absence, four of which were spent at Gloucester.
Worcester team: Melani Nanai; Tom Howe, Ollie Lawrence, Ashley Beck, Scott van Breda; Billy Searle, Francois Hougaard; Ethan Waller, Niall Annett, Nick Schonert, Anton Bresler, Graham Kitchener, Ted Hill (captain), Sam Lewis, Matt Kvesic.
Replacements: Beck Cutting, Lewis Holsey, Richard Palframan, GJ van Velze, Cornell du Preez, Gareth Simpson, Duncan Weir, Francois Venter.
