TOM DUNN’S THOUGHTS ON WORCESTER WARRIORS
"There is no added pressure this weekend. It's another opportunity to put the Bath jersey on again, it's another opportunity to go out there and do your job for the team, and that all I see it as for me. It's to go out there and do set-piece, headbutt some shins, carry the ball and hopefully let the boys outside me with some talent, score some tries.”
WORCESTER WARRIORS’ CURRENT FORM
Bristol Bears 30-13 Worcester Warriors | Gallagher Premiership
Worcester Warriors 11-10 London Irish | Gallagher Premiership
Sale Sharks 0-20 Worcester Warriors | Gallagher Premiership
Worcester Warriors 40-27 Saracens | Gallagher Premiership

LAST TIME OUT
Bath Rugby kept up the pressure on the Premiership top four with a bonus-point victory over Worcester Warriors.
After wins for play-off rivals Sale, Bristol, and Wasps, Bath knew any slip-up would dent their top-four chances.
But four first-half tries from Tom Ellis, Elliott Stooke, Jack Walker, and Tom de Glanville made sure they would take five points with victory.
Further scores from Stooke and a superb solo effort from Josh Matavesi stretched the lead after the break.
Worcester got on the scoresheet thanks to first-half tries from Billy Searle and Ed Fidow but was outclassed as their poor run extended to one win in 12 league games. Captain Will Butler was also stretchered off with his left ankle in a splint midway through the first half.
