Te'o makes Warriors return for Saracens trip

Correspondent 28th Dec, 2018 Updated: 28th Dec, 2018

ENGLAND centre Ben Te’o will make his first start of the season for Warriors in their Gallagher Premiership match against Saracens at Allianz Park tomorrow (kick-off 3pm).

A combination of injury and international commitments have restricted Te’o to just one appearance as a replacement in the European Challenge Cup win over Ospreys in October so far this season.

Te’o will form a new centre pairing with Francois Venter as Ryan Mills suffered a wrist injury against Northampton Saints last week and he will miss his first Premiership match this season.

Injuries also force Warriors to make three more changes to their starting XV with Perry Humphreys, Gareth Milasinovich and Ted Hill replacing Josh Adams, Nick Schonert and Marco Mama.

Simon Kerrod, who last played in the Premiership as a replacement against Bristol Bears in October, and Matt Cox are named among the replacements.
