Team News: O’Callaghan to lead Warriors against Russians

Aaron Wise 20th Jan, 2017

DONNCHA O’Callaghan will lead Warriors in their final European Challenge Cup game of the 2016/17 campaign against Enisei-STM at Sixways tomorrow.

The British and Irish Lion is one of five changes to the starting line-up which faced Brive last weekend, with Ben Te’o being named in the side before he heads away for training with England ahead of the RBS 6 Nations.

Youngster Jamie Shillcock returns to the side at fly-half, while Sam Betty gets the nod in the back row in place of Marco Mama, who has a tight hamstring.

Val Rapava Ruskin will also start after his try scoring efforts from the bench last weekend in France.

A neck injury picked up in a collision last Saturday leaves Jonny Arr out, while Sam Ripper-Smith comes into the replacements as Warriors look to finish the competition on a high.
