Greene King IPA Championship play-off final first leg
Ashton Gate

Worcester Warriors visit the West Country for the first leg of the Championship final at Ashton Gate on Wednesday (7.45pm kick-off).

During the regular campaign, Warriors won nineteen of their twenty-one regular league matches and all nine of their B&I Cup games to secure the title.

Dean Ryan's side have yet to beat Bristol this season, losing on the opening day at Ashton Gate and then suffering a 30-26 defeat at Sixways.

The play-off semi-finals saw a trip to Richmond to face London Scottish where three yellow cards upset Warriors’ rhythm but a late penalty try ensured a five-point advantage going into the second leg.

And, although Scottish took an early lead at Sixways, Warriors responded to sweep them aside 38-15 to secure their place in the final.

The second leg will take place at Sixways on Wednesday, May 27th (7.45pm kick-off).
