Aaron Wise 14th Dec, 2017

CARL Hogg has made two changes to his Warriors side ahead of tomorrow night’s European Challenge Cup clash with Oyonnax at the Stade Charles Mathon (kick-off 8pm CET).

Chris Pennell comes in at centre, while Simon Kerrod is given a start at tighthead.

Ryan Bower will again skipper the side from the front row alongside Kerrod and Joe Taufete’e, whilst Darren Barry and Pierce Phillips start in the second row.

David Denton continues at number eight and will be joined in the back row by Huw Taylor and Andrew Durutalo.

There is plenty of pace in the backline as Ben Howard retains his place at full-back, while Tom Howe and Perry Humphreys start on the wings.

Pennell will partner Max Stelling in midfield, whilst Josh Adams comes onto the bench to replace Dean Hammond, who sustained a head injury last time out.
