Team News: Singleton and Kitchener to start against Exeter

Worcester Editorial 25th Nov, 2016 Updated: 25th Nov, 2016   0

WARRIORS academy duo Jack Singleton and Andrew Kitchener will both make their first Aviva Premiership starts against Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park tomorrow.

The pair, who have recently impressed in the European Challenge Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup, were handed their Premiership debuts last Friday night against Saints, and now head coach Carl Hogg has promoted them to the starting line-up.

Winger Bryce Heem is set to make his first start of the season after scoring on his return last Friday, while Josh Adams is given the nod on the opposite flank in his first Premiership start of the campaign.

Wynand Olivier and Dean Hammond form the midfield partnership, with 19-year-old Jamie Shillcock and Jonny Arr completing the half-back combination.

Flanker Sam Lewis could make his first ever Premiership appearance from the bench after impressing for Worcester Cavaliers on Monday night against Oxford University, while Tom Biggs has also been named in the replacements alongside Donncha O’Callaghan and Jackson Willison.
