Worcester v London Irish - Aviva Premiership match preview
Worcester boss Richard Hill has made three changes for the visit of London Irish on Friday as his side look to bounce back from the narrow defeat to Northampton last time out.
Josh Matavesi impressed with his try-scoring exploits against the Saints and starts alongside Alex Grove in the centres in place of Joe Carlisle.
Shaun Perry is injured so Jonny Arr will start at scrum-half while the only change in the pack sees Matt Kvesic handed the No 8 jersey.
Jon Clarke could make his league debut for the Warriors after being named among the replacements along with scrum-half Ollie Frost.
Samoa international Sailosi Tagicakibau will start in his familiar wing position for the first time this season after starting the last three Exiles matches in the centres.
The only other change sees Scotland hooker David Paice back in the front row alongside Max Lahiff and Halani Aulika.
Worcester: Pennell, Walker, Grove, Matavesi, Lemi, Goode, Arr, Mullan, Lutui, Andress, Percival, Schofield, Jones, Betty, Kvesic.
Replacements: Hayes, Jones, Currie, Gillies, Taulava, Frost, Carlisle, Clarke.
London Irish: Homer, Yarde, Joseph, Shingler, Tagicakibau, Humphreys, O'Leary, Lahiff, Paice, Aulika, Evans, Garvey, Danaher, Gibson, Treviranus.
Replacements: Malton, Yanuyanutawa, Cotter, Skivington, Gray, Ojo, Geraghty, Moates.
