WASPS have had an insiders view of Worcester Warriors in the build up to tonight’s crucial return to the Aviva Premiership at Sixways.

Fly half combination Andy Goode and Joe Carlisle both made the switch last summer and have had the coaches ears as they try to mastermind a winning gameplan.

However, director of rugby Dai Young admits the advantages aren’t as great as they once were.

He said: “They’ve given us a bit of insight, but Worcester have got different coaches and we’ve seen enough of them.

“There is a bit of insight about individuals but not the collective.

“At this stage of the season there’s not much to hide from teams.

They’ll want to come out and play, but the first thing we’ll have to handle is their physicality. We’ll have to match their attitude and desire.”
