The Sharks met the Warriors on the opening day of last season, picking up a losing bonus point in a 17-12 defeat. In meetings between the clubs since January 2009, victory has gone with home advantage.
Worcester Warriors come into the game on the back of massive Amlin Challenge Cup wins, 85-5 at Bizkaia Gernika and 90-3 at home to Rovigo.
Their Premiership record includes a bonus point home win against the Irish, a draw against Gloucester, and a four-try bonus point in defeat at Northampton. They start tomorrow ten points clear of their visitors.
Warriors have two former Sharks in their ranks, Chris Jones and Dean Schofield, who incidentally has captained both clubs. Schofield returned to domestic rugby after a spell in Toulon.
Loosehead prop Matt Mullan is much admired within the game, and Warriors have David Lemi flying on the wing, scorer of six tries already.
The evergreen Andy Goode continues to impress at fly half. His career total is 637 points.
