WARRIORS’ Kitchener brothers are both set to be named in the starting side for tomorrow night’s clash with Northampton Saints for the first time ever in the Gallagher Premiership (7.45pm).

The two featured side-by-side for 20 minutes of the first half on Saturday in the 14-8 defeat at Leicester Tigers after Andrew joined older brother Graham following Anton Bresler’s concussion.

It did not last long as Graham was replaced at the break, also with concussion, but Alan Solomons revealed the pair were likely to pack down from the start this week.

“That’s what it’s looking like,” Solomons added.

“It’s fantastic, I love it when brothers play together as I’m a great believer in the closer you are to people the better you play.”

Andrew Kitchener also expressed how much he is looking forward to the occasion and how proud a moment it would be for their family.

“That will be really nice,” he said.

“Hopefully he (Graham) gets through the concussion protocol first but then if he does that’s the plan.

“It’ll be the first time since Exeter at home in the Premiership Cup so that’ll be really good.

“It will definitely be a lovely moment for the family. I’m sure they’ll all be there watching and it’ll be a proud moment for them and a proud one for us too.”

The younger of the two brothers also spoke about there being “no need to panic” despite the run of five league defeats in a row.

“I don’t think there’s any need to rethink anything or tear up what we’ve been doing,” Andrew Kitchener, 23, said.

“We’re aware that we’ve been on the wrong side of the scoreline for three or four games now but we’re trying hard in training to address that.

“It’s up to the players to find that extra focus to get on the right side of things.

“We have to trust the coaches and what we put in place and what we’ve been doing over the season but it’s about sorting out those finer details.

“Although morale can be affected by these results as a group we are still confident in our ability and there’s no need to panic.”

Warriors face a tricky test against Saints who themselves have struggled in recent weeks.

This week’s visitors were top of the table last month but have since fallen away and now sit fourth following four straight Premiership defeats.

Andrew Kitchener added: “They (Saints) have struggled a bit lately. Perhaps they’re in a similar position to us in not having the best of form so maybe that is something we can capitalise on.

“If we can start quickly and get some points early on that could help things for us.

“We want to win every game and we are well capable of winning tomorrow.

“If we do it should give us momentum and some confidence heading into the next block of games.”
