The road ahead isn’t full of roses for Warriors as they face tough tests against last year’s semi-finalists Wasps, Chiefs and Saracens at Sixways and a trip to Kingsholm to face rivals Gloucester this month.
Gold is fully aware of the task at hand and knows his side will have to live up to their warrior names and put in battling displays if they want to rack up the points on offer.
Whether you’re a fan of playing the cream of the crop so early on to test yourself against the best or feel wheezy at the thought of it, Warriors definitely face a gargantuan challenge this September.
But what does Gold make of this month’s fixtures?
Wasps did the double over Worcester last season with a 26-12 win at Sixways and a 40-33 victory at the Ricoh Arena.
Do you think Gold’s men can pick up more than just a bonus-point against their neighbours this time round? (kick-off 3pm).
