Aaron Wise 3rd Nov, 2016 Updated: 3rd Nov, 2016

NEW ARRIVAL Michael Dowsett will make his Warriors debut against Bristol at Sixways tomorrow night in the Anglo-Welsh Cup .

The Australian-born scrum-half will link up with Jamie Shillcock in the half-back combination.

Chris Pennell skippers the side from full-back, with winger Josh Adams also in the starting line-up after signing a first-team deal earlier in the week.

Academy hooker Jack Singleton is handed his first Warriors start in the front row alongside the more experienced Samoan pair of Na’ama Leleimalefaga and James Johnston, while Dewald Potgieter makes his first start of the season at blindside flanker.

In the replacements, Niall Annett could be set for his 50th club appearance while academy duo Justin Clegg and Afeafe Haisila Lokotui will make their debuts should they feature from the bench.
