Team News: Butler set for Warriors debut

Aaron Wise 14th Oct, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

ACADEMY youngster Will Butler is set to make his first-team debut on Saturday when Warriors open their European Challenge Cup campaign against Enisei-STM.

Backs coach Sam Vesty, who is overseeing the side in Europe, has named a mix of youth and experience for the clash as the Sixways side look to get off to a winning start in Moscow.

Josh Adams, Charlie Hewitt and Matti Williams will all make their first starts for the club, while Max Stelling and Andy Short will make their first appearances of the season.

Jamie Shillcock will line up at fly-half after impressing at full-back in recent weeks and Luke Baldwin and Dean Hammond will complete the backline.

In the forward pack, Sam Betty and Huw Taylor will also experience their first taste of action this term, as will prop Ryan Bower, who will skipper the side.

Christian Scotland-Williamson, Matt Cox and Mike Daniels all make their first starts of the campaign to complete the starting line-up.
