WELSH winger Harri Doel will make his first Worcester Warriors start this weekend at the Ricoh Arena against Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership clash tomorrow (3pm kick-off).

Doel, who has been a replacement in the last three league games (Harlequins, Sale and Exeter last weekend), is on loan from the Scarlets but will have his move made permanent in the summer.

He is one of three changes to the starting side with Billy Searle recalled at fly-half to face his former side as he takes the place of the injured Fin Smith, who has a sore shoulder.

Ollie Lawrence has recovered from his injury to take his place on a strong looking replacement bench that includes on-loan Cardiff Blue prop Scott Andrews (debut) and Samoan winger Ed Fidow.

Francois Venter will make his 50th appearance for the club as he again partners Ashley Beck in midfield.

Venter, 30, joined Warriors from Cheetahs in the summer of 2018 and he has been a consistent performer since he made his debut against Wasps in the opening match of the 2018/19 season.

Here is how the opposition line-up:
