Pat Sanderson, Adam Balding, James Collins, Greg Rawlinson and Will Bowley. With 456 top flight appearances between them, even by Premiership standards it’s quite an impressive back five.
But then as if, more than any other stat, just to demonstrate the relative depth of their resources the aforementioned Worcester forwards won’t be in Championship action this weekend.
Incredibly that’s Richard Hill’s line up for next Monday’s A League encounter against whichever unfortunate knock-kneed kiddies Sale send to south to Sixways.
Just to underline the point Willie Walker – one of last season’s leading scorers – and Chris Fortey, a player with the third most Premiership appearances of all time, will get their first competitive action of the season this weekend when Warriors face Doncaster.
It goes without saying that Worcester are operating in a different sphere from a Birmingham & Solihull side that ended their match at London Welsh with six front rowers in their pack or a Moseley bench commonly filled with injured players just to make up the numbers.
Yet managing such an embarrassment of riches has been one of Richard Hill’s hardest jobs since he took over from Mike Ruddock at the end of last season.
Sanderson and Balding haven’t played a second – albeit through injury – while Collins, Rawlinson and Bowley have only had limited access to fresh meat.
Yet all five – as well as Craig Gillies and Oriol Ripol – are ready for action now as the competition for places in the Worcester team reaches white hot intensity.
It is probably no exaggeration to say Hill could put out two XVs and come first and second in the division.
Unfortunately for him he does not have that luxury and so the former England scrum half is forced to keep the dogs of war on a short leash.
“The outward perception is that we may not be picking what people perceive to be the best XV,” Hill muses as he ponders which international to leave out.
“My view is that we have a good enough squad of 31 fit players and any starting XV should be able to win matches in this league.
“They might be scraping through sometimes if they have a lot of young lads in there but it will give everyone a chance to prove what they can do and me the chance to try various combinations in the squad and not flog certain players by playing week in week out.
“After we have played each team once we will know what team we need to select for that particular opponent.”
You can just picture Russell Earnshaw nodding in agreement and Ian Smith sharing his former Gloucester coach’s conundrum. Who to omit indeed?
So far this season Hill has been right, Worcester have scraped through with unproven academy products like Calum Black, Jonny Arr, Jake Abbott and Joey Carlisle given more than their fair share of game time.
However, things took a turn for the ominous at the incongruously named Pillar Data Arena towards then end of last Saturday’s 48-3 battering of Esher.
After a slow first half Hill’s star-studded team moved up a gear to the extent that they rattled along at a point a minute for most of the second period.
England’s third choice fly half Andy Goode grabbed a couple of tries and Wales international Andy Williams ran the show as Tom Arscott sparkled so brightly he would have been visible from Hampton Court Palace.
More worrying for the clubs trying to compete is the fact Worcester have not yet learned how to score too heavily.
“I have been delighted with Tom,” Hill says. “Sides will be very frightened to kick to him.
“That back three of Marcel Garvey, Tom Arscott and Miles Benjamin is a deadly back three – and we haven’t even worked on our counter attack yet.
“What you see out there at the moment is a bit of natural flair when we are running the ball back. But there will be a scheme of work over the next four or five weeks where we will start to work on counter attack and get our routines sorted out.”
Just as well really because Hill must cringe at a return of a mere 18 tries from their first four matches.
Perhaps, more seriously, he concedes his side have yet to convince opponents they needn’t bother turning up as many feared Worcester would.
Rotherham and Plymouth have been energised by the sight of the Blue and Gold while Esher and Birmingham had their chances.
“We have not stamped our mark on it yet or imposed ourselves on the Championship. But we are in the middle of September, there is a long way to go. Do you need to hit top form now? Not really. If you can keep winning, working at it, keep managing and rotating the squad to find the best XV by February or March - that would be the best time to peak.
“We would all love to play sparkling rugby and be absolutely brilliant but the key thing is to play the really good stuff in the second part of the season.”
Or in the A League.
