Worcester will have a few tricks up their sleeves, warns Leicester Tigers winger Miles Benjamin
New signing Miles Benjamin has warned his Leicester Tigers team-mates that Worcester could do some "special things" in today's visit to Welford Road.
The 24-year-old winger made the move from Sixways in the summer after scoring 57 tries in 119 appearances for the Warriors.
So he is better placed than most to offer his new team-mates a useful critique on what Tigers will face from Richard Hill's side in today's Aviva Premiership clash. The Warriors were rock-bottom of the try-scoring charts last season with just 23 in 22 games, but Benjamin believes there is a new focus this season.
"Worcester have had a big shake-up this year. Lots of people have left and lots of people have come in," he said.

"From the way they played against Bath last week, it looks like they are going well and I know they want to play a bit more than last year and score some tries.
"The defence has always been good at Worcester but, in attack, they also have players who can do special things if you give them the opportunity.
"They want to move the ball a bit more and they will be looking forward to a big performance at Welford Road.
"Andy Goode will be coming back to his old club and, although he will be fired up, he knows he has a job to do.
"From Leicester's point of view, we need to stick to our strengths and try to overpower them with our plans. Worcester have a good defence but Leicester have scored the most tries in the league for the last two years for a reason. There are some exciting players and big ball-carriers here."
Benjamin misses today's game after picking up a "stinger" to his neck during Monday's A League defeat Northampton.
He is looking forward to getting over both that and a pre-season operation to a big toe, before pushing his claim for a first-team shirt.
"I have had my fair share of stick for turning up and being injured straight away, especially with a toe injury which is not ideal," he said.
"I am coming back to fitness now and will hopefully be able to push my case in the next few weeks.
"I got a stinger (on Monday) with a lot of pain down through my neck. It was very stiff. It takes a week to heal up and then I will be back playing again.
"I will miss playing against my old club, which is frustrating. It would have been nice to get out there, but my main focus is to just get healthy and compete for a place."
