New loan signing Eoghan Hickey will make his debut for Worcester Warriors as Mike Ruddock makes six changes for the clash with Bourgoin in the European Challenge Cup at Sixways.

Hickey, signed from London Irish in midweek, will play at full back as Warriors look to return to winning ways in Pool 3 in their first game on home soil in the competition this season.

Rico Gear reverts back to the wing while Sam Tuitupou returns to the centre after missing last week's game to return home to New Zealand.

Director of rugby Ruddock makes three changes in the front row with Darren Morris, Chris Fortey and Tevita Taumoepeau all restored to the starting line-up with Matt Mullan rested.

Greg Rawlinson is also taken out of firing line and rested this week with Will Bowley promoted to the second row and Graham Kitchener on the replacements bench. Hal Luscombe is set for his first competitive start for the club after being named on the bench.

WARRIORS: Hickey; Gear, Rasmussen, Tuitupou, Fellows; Carlisle, Powell; Morris, Fortey, Taumoepeau, Bowley, Gillies, Talei, Sanderson, Horstmann. Replacements:  Horsman, Lutui, Kitchener, Cox, Arr, Grove, Luscombe
