Team-mates Alex Grove (L) and Miles Benjamin (R)

Scotland international centre Alex Grove is called into the starting line-up as Worcester Warriors prepare to face Cornish Pirates in the second leg of the RFU Championship at Sixways Stadium on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

Head Coach Richard Hill opts to make just one change to the side that secured a 21-12 victory in Penzance last weekend with Grove coming to the team for Alex Crockett who moves to the bench.

Predatory wing Miles Benjamin, the top try scorer in the league, will also make his 100th game for Warriors in the final showdown of the season. Pack duo Adam Black and Greg Rawlinson will both start the game in what is their final appearance for Worcester Warriors.

“We have no new injury problems and out of 37 in the squad we just have Pat Sanderson out. Everyone is fit and raring to go,” said Hill. Alex Grove has really impressed when he has come off the bench in recent games and fully deserves his call-up to start the second leg.

“The team is now eager for the final hurdle to arrive and start. I don’t think we made full use of the domination we enjoyed in the scrum and lineout in the last game. If we can establish that again, and use the ball a lot better, we could be more efficient and put more pressure on them.”

Supporters are reminded that the final second leg is sold out and no tickets remain available. Only fans with tickets should travel to Sixways on the night of the game and those making the journey are urged to allow plenty of time to make the trip.
