The 10,000 fans watching Worcester Warriors kick off their Guinness Premiership campaign against Bristol on Saturday have been thrown a challenge - make a wall of noise and launch us on our best season so far.
The Sixways crowd has a reputation for becoming the 16th Warriors player on the pitch, and director of rugby John Brain does not want that to let up as his team bids to move forward on the pitch, as well as off it, in the coming eight months.
To make it all the noisier when the whistle blows this weekend, 2000 horns will be given away to Worcester supporters at the Bristol match.
"The players respond to the close relationship they have with our supporters," says John, "so we want to generate some energy and passion.
"The atmosphere at Sixways is always very special, and it really does make a difference to the guys on the pitch. Let's have a wall of noise on Saturday. The horns will be handed out at the ground before the match."
Warriors youngsters Huw Taylor and Jack Singleton will start for England in the World Rugby Under 20 Championship final against Ireland this Saturday night at Sale Sharks' AJ Bell Stadium (kick-off 7pm).
Worcester Warriors Chief Executive Jim O'Toole has dismissed suggestions made in a national newspaper that the Club is pulling back on its long-term financial commitment to become an established Aviva Premiership Club.
