Worcester Warriors have handed a Premiership debut to winger Tom Howe for the upcoming clash against London Irish to be played at Sixways on Saturday.

Howe was impressive for the Sixways outfit in the Premiership Rugby Cup and also scored a try in the Challenge Cup clash against Dragons earning him a promotion to the domestic top tier competition. He will take the place of Melani Nanai at left wing after the latter misses out with a shoulder injury. 

Worcester Warriors are positioned eighth in the table with three wins from six games.
