WORCESTER Warriors tackle Enisei-STM in their opening European Challenge Cup fixture on Friday (4pm GMT).

This will be Warriors’ first trip to Russia since they faced the same opposition at the Slava Stadium in October 2016.

That day Worcester’s matchday 23 averaged just 22 years old as they fell to a 19-12 defeat.

Here is every player that featured in the 23-man squad and where they find themselves today.

15 Josh Adams- making his first start for the club, the wing scored in this fixture and went on to be one of Warriors most prolific players in recent times. He joined Cardiff Blues in the summer and had an impressive World Cup for Wales.

14 Andy Short – rose through the Warriors ranks and spent five years at the club across two spells either side of a two-year stint at Bristol. He had to retire from rugby in 2017 due to a hip injury and is set to complete a masters in building surveying.

13 Max Stelling – played a key role in the side that won promotion in 2014-15. He left Worcester in 2018 to join Japanese side Hino Red Dolphins.

12 Will Butler – was handed his debut in Russia and continued to impress ever since but is currently on the sidelines due to an ankle injury.

11 Dean Hammond – has struggled to stay fit enough to become a mainstay in Warriors’ first team, making one appearance in the Premiership Cup this term.

10 Jamie Shillcock – hampered by injuries during his Warriors career and now seen as more of a fullback by boss Alan Solomons, marking his long-awaited return to Premiership action with a crucial try last weekend.

9 Luke Baldwin – has slipped down the pecking order since the arrival of Solomons, eventually joining ex-Warriors chief Dean Ryan at Dragons on a season-long loan.

1 Ryan Bower – captained the side Russia. The prop has featured 98 times for Warriors, although he has yet to make an appearance in the Premiership this term after an injury-hit 2018-19 campaign.

2 Matti Williams – now playing his rugby as a back-rower the ex-Northampton Saints man earned a new contract at Sixways last season but remains on the fringes of the first team.

3 Mike Daniels – will be remembered for his 70-metre try against Doncaster Knights in his debut season in 2015. After leaving in 2017, the prop went on to play for Hartpury, Nottingham and even made one appearance for Wasps. In September, Daniels signed for Newcastle Falcons.

4 Charlie Hewitt – made six appearances in his Warriors career. The lock was released in 2017 and was signed by the Major League Rugby side Houston Sabercats.

5 Christian Scotland-Williamson – made 23 outings in blue and gold but decided to quit the game in 2017 to pursue a career in American football. He is currently part of the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad.

6 Huw Taylor – signed his first senior contract at Warriors in 2017 after coming through the academy and made 27 appearances for the club. But the flanker signed for Dragons a year later.

7 Sam Betty – turned out for Warriors more than 100 times over a six-year spell and was voted players’ player of the year in 2012. He retired at the end of his contract in 2017 and is now running a gym in Cornwall.

8 Matt Cox – another product of the Warriors academy, the experienced back-rower has established himself as a firm fans’ favourite and is just four matches away from becoming a club centurion.

16 Jack Singleton – made his debut in this fixture and went on to be one of Warriors’ stand out performers, making his way into the England World Cup squad. He rejoined his hometown club Saracens this summer.

17 Derrick Appiah – came off the bench to score Warriors’ second try of the game in Russia. The prop now plies his trade in Italy for Benetton Rugby.

18 Biyi Alo – made his Worcester bow against Enisei and featured 29 more times before joining Coventry for a brief stint prior to signing for Wasps earlier this year.

19 Andrew Kitchener – another player that made his first senior outing in Russia. After graduating with a first-class degree in economics, the lock is now fully focused on making an impact at Warriors.

20 Zac Xiourouppa – there were high hopes for the back-rower who came on for his debut in this European clash but has been blighted by injuries and joined Birmingham Moseley this summer.

21 George de Cothi – the former England sevens player made 12 appearances for Warriors but failed to stay in the first team for long and now plays for Richmond in National One.

22 Tiff Eden – struggled to break into Worcester’s senior side and was released in 2017. He dropped into the Championship where he starred for Nottingham and is now back in the Premiership with Bristol Bears.

23 Ryan Lamb – famous for his promotion-winning kick, the fly half left Warriors in 2017 for La Rochelle. He announced his retirement at the end of last season but has since signed for Scarlets in the Pro 14.
