Worcester v Exeter preview
David Lemi and Euan Murray both return to the Warriors starting line-up for this Saturday's Aviva Premiership clash with Exeter Chiefs.
Winger Lemi missed the win at Newcastle Falcons with injury but returns to the backline alongside Ryan Lamb, Ravai Fatiaki, Alex Grove and Josh Drauniniu, who is set for his 50th Warriors appearance.
Jonny Arr starts at scrum-half while Chris Pennell, who has played every minute of every league match this season, will again start at full-back.
Meanwhile, Murray lines up next to Ofa Fainga'anuku and Agustin Creevy in the front-row with James Percival and Mariano Galarza in the second-row.
Mike Williams will feature again at flanker next to Sam Betty and skipper Jonathan Thomas, while Paul Warwick returns to the replacements.
"I'm not going to mess around and create opportunities at this stage of the season," said Worcester boss Dean Ryan.
"We have given people chances but there won't be anyone coming from the outside now. We will stick with this group.
"Exeter beat us convincingly at their place despite us having a lot of the ball, and in the LV= Cup at Sixways we gave some players some game-time and we weren't at the races.
"We got a great response after that and we've been on a good run since that in terms of being competitive week-in week-out.
"We had a huge confidence boost two weeks ago, we're fresh and this gives us every chance of getting something."
Meanwhile, team news for the Chiefs ahead of Saturday's trip sees Baxter re-jig his pack somewhat.
Alex Brown comes in at tighthead for Hoani Tui, Don Armand makes his first Premiership start in the second-row alongside Damian Welch, and skipper Dean Mumm is switched to the back-row in place of Tom Johnson.
Behind, the experienced Steenson takes over at fly-half; Sam Hill partners Ian Whitten in the midfield and the back three has a new-look with Matt Jess joined by Fetu'u Vainikolo and Phil Dollman; whilst on the bench, Craig Mitchell and James Phillips also return to the fray.
"We know it's going to be a tough game up there, but what I want to see is us getting ourselves back up and playing in a fresh and energetic manner and just looking forward to playing games of Premiership rugby again," said Exeter boss Rob Baxter.
"Worcester's performances have slowly been improving, there results have been getting closer, and that in itself shows they are becoming more and more competitive."
