Team News: Potgieter and Bregvadze to start against Chiefs

Aaron Wise 17th Feb, 2017 Updated: 17th Feb, 2017

WARRIORS have made just two changes to their starting line-up for tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership clash with Exeter Chiefs at Sixways.

Back row Dewald Potgieter returns to the squad following an ankle knock, while Jaba Bregvadze replaces the injured Jack Singleton at hooker.

Elsewhere in the pack, Ryan Bower is rewarded with another Premiership start after impressing in last weekend’s win over Saracens, while Donncha O’Callaghan skippers the side once again. The backline remains unchanged.

In the replacements, Joe Taufete’e could be set for his first Premiership appearance after returning from the USA for the birth of his first child.

Val Rapava Ruskin is on the bench after recovering from a back problem, while Sam Lewis is also in the squad.
