OFF THE back of signing Gary Gold as Director of Rugby and loosehead prop Ryan Grant, there is a feel-good feeling around the Sixways camp as they head into a fortnight of Anglo-Welsh Cup games against Harlequins and Cardiff Blues.
Worcester currently sit in third place in Pool C of the tournament on five points, just one point off group leaders Ospreys.
In the first round of fixtures back in November, Warriors beat Bristol 31-25 at Sixways, before suffering a thumping 62-10 defeat to Wasps in Coventry.
First up for Worcester is a home clash against Quins tomorrow (Saturday).
Will Gold and Hogg use the match blood youngsters like in the European Challenge Cup? Or will they bring experienced players in?
And what sort of side does Hogg expect Harlequins to play?
Observer reporter Aaron Wise will be at Sixways following all the action from 3pm.
