Team News: Pennell and Te’o to start against Brive

Aaron Wise 21st Oct, 2016 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

FULL-BACK Chris Pennell and centre Ben Te’o will make their return from injury in tomorrow’s European Challenge Cup clash against Brive at Sixways.

Pennell will be making his first appearance since May as Warriors look to pick up their first win of the competition.

Both Pennell and Te’o are two of five changes to the side that were beaten in Moscow last weekend by Enisei-STM, as Tom Heathcote, Andrew Kitchener and Zac Xiourouppa are all handed starting berths to take on the French outfit.

Dean Hammond and Jamie Shillcock are named in the replacements, as is academy back row Sam Ripper-Smith, who could be set for his Warriors debut if he features from the bench.
