    • - Thanks for joining us this evening!
    • 80' FT. And that's it. A convincing 27-7 win for Worcester over Leeds.
    • 79' Worcester waiting for the time to come in before kicking to touch...
    • 76' Great defence from Worcester and Benjamin puts in a superb tackle to deny Leeds what looked a certain try.
    • 75' Into the final five minutes now and Leeds are pushing for some kind of consolation score.
    • 73' Worcester defending a 20-point lead with little over seven minutes to go, and they're well on course for their first win of the new season...
    • 71' PENALTY FOR WORCESTER. Walker slots one between the posts and that's 27-7 with nine minutes remaining.
    • 70' Worcester win a penalty as Leeds break too early from the scrum.
    • 69' Grove comes back on after his 10-minute sin binning.
    • 67' Worcester trying to build some forward momentum as they carry the ball. But a scrum's conceded and Leeds have some respite.
    • 66' Barrow nearly intercepts a pass from Worcester number six Wood. Lucky escape...
    • 65' Yet another penalty is given away by Worcester...
    • 64' Worcester have the ball deep in their own 22, Latham goes for touch but doesn't make it. And another penalty is conceded by the hosts. They can't keep getting away with this with 14 men.
    • 63' Fourie loses the ball out of his hands and Worcester have survived again. Resolute defence from the hosts, but the danger's not completely cleared...
    • 62' Worcester defend well and are holding Leeds back. Leeds kick over the top as Blackett chases, but Worcester take possession back.
    • 61' Important scrum for Worcester, who are down to 14 men. Can Leeds make this count?
    • 60' Leeds see a chance from a line-out, and are two metres from Worcester's try-line...
    • 59' Worcester concede another penalty and Grove is binned for failing to roll away from the tackle.
    • 59' Leeds still camping inside Worcester's half, but a grubber through the defence goes straight out. That's four or five minutes of pressure that's amounted to nothing for the visitors.
    • 58' The referee has a word with Pat Sanderson about Worcester's discipline at the breakdown.
    • 56' Worcester make roughly 15 metres with some pushing defence work. Leeds are struggling to break them down.
    • 54' Worcester suffer a lapse in discipline and concede three penalties on the bounce.
    • 51' TRY FOR WORCESTER! Garvey collects a bouncing ball and runs it over for a try after some great work from the Warriors. Walker misses the conversion, but 24-7 is a commanding lead nevertheless.
    • 50' Leeds need to do something here. Gomarsall drops a box kick over the Worcester defence but it's dealt with.
    • 48' A quite clinical start to the second half from Worcester.
    • 46' PENALTY FOR WORCESTER. Walker slots it again and that's 19-7. Worcester pulling away now...
    • 45' This looks like another kickable penalty. Could Worcester practically see Leeds off inside the opening five minutes of the second half?
    • 44' DROP GOAL FOR WORCESTER. Walker drops one through the posts to further the Warriors' lead. They're starting to edge away... 16-7 now.
    • 44' Paul replaces Wentzel...
    • 42' PENALTY FOR WORCESTER. Walker obliges and the Warriors are six points in front.
    • 42' Latham feeds Tuitupou and he wins a penalty early on and that's a good start from Worcester. Well within range of goal...
    • 41' And we're back underway at Sixways...
    • - Still very close at half time. Stay with us to see how this one goes...
    • 40' Walker pulls it though and the ball sails wide. HT and Worcester lead 10-7 at the interval.
    • 40' A minute left and Worcester win a penalty. They're going for goal on the stroke of half time...
    • 39' Leeds kick out of their own 22 and Latham scoops the ball up. Garvey spreads play to Benjamin, and Sanderson is then brought into proceedings.
    • 38' Tuitupou breaks a couple of tackles and makes some ground. Powell takes up charging duties but can't make much more distance. Worcester trying to extend their lead before the half-time break.
    • 37' Another chance for three points goes begging though as Worcester lose position.
    • 36' Worcester steal another Leeds line-out, and Mullan drives forward with the ball and wins a penalty.
    • 35' But Worcester give away a penalty and the chance passes.
    • 34' Walker looks to be positioning himself for a drop goal here...
    • 32' Leeds trying to slow Worcester down as the hosts attempt to build from the base of a ruck. But the home side put their opponents under pressure with a good kick forward.
    • 30' Worcester run the ball and Latham finds a good touch with a kick from inside his own 22.
    • 28' Gillies takes the ball well at a line-out. Worcester concede a penalty in contact and Leeds can work something here.
    • 27' Powell gathers his breath after taking a big hit. The Worcester scrum-half took a heavy one to his leg there.
    • 26' Leeds break through the middle with Blackett and they can build from here. But no, Worcester turn it over and are coming back...
    • 24' Latham takes Worcester forward again and the hosts will try and recycle the ball as quickly as possible. Walker kicks right down Goodridge's throat and he marks it.
    • 23' Worcester regain the lead and the home crowd are bouncing again at 10-7. It's been close so far, but that's what we expected...
    • 21' CONVERTED TRY FOR WORCESTER! Grove goes through with a strong run to finish for an immediate reponse! Walker converts to edge Worcester back in front by three points.
    • 20' Worcester steal a Leeds line-out again much to the home crowd's delight. They need a response to that Leeds try...
    • 18' CONVERTED TRY FOR LEEDS! Worcester switch off and Leeds punish them. Hepworth finds a good line and slices Worcester's centres.
    • 17' Leeds drive forward over Worcester's 22 and it's the first time the visitors have been in a good position. They win a scrum 10 metres out and this looks promising for Leeds.
    • 16' Ma'asi replaces Rawlinson, who can't continue after his earlier injury...
    • 15' Worcester win another penalty, not within striking range but Walker will put it into touch for a good line-out deep in Leeds's half...
    • 14' Garvey takes another poor pass well and retains possession for the hosts. Benjamin's on the ball, and he holds on well in the tackle. Walker chips forward but Leeds take it and concede the line-out under pressure.
    • 12' Wood does well to snatch the ball at a Leeds line-out. Garvey makes some ground after slipping initially when receiving the ball from Walker. Worcester just inside Leeds's half...
    • 11' Latham gathers the ball and punts forward but appears to be taken out off the ball. The ball flies back and forth a couple of times and the game's still awaiting a spark.
    • 10' Leeds hooker Rawlinson hits the deck, it's an ankle injury by the look of it. The physio is on, and he's walking around gingerly.
    • 9' Worcester get some momentum as their pack drives on. Walker chips forward and chases but Hepworth scoops the ball and sees off the immediate danger. Good ground made up by the Worcester fly-half there...
    • 6' First scrum of the game has to be re-set three times and Tuitupou puts in a thumping tackle on Barrow as Leeds edge forward.
    • 4' PENALTY FOR WORCESTER. Knocked over by Walker and Warriors take an early lead.
    • 3' Walker chips forward for Tuitupou but Leeds manage to see off the danger.
    • 2' Worcester establishing some early territory with a line-out inside Leeds's half.
    • 1' And we're off!
    • - The teams emerge from the tunnel and we're moments away from kick-off...
    • - The last time these two met was in March 2008, when a 10-10 draw was eked out at Sixways. Could be a tight one here as well...
