PIRATES number one Steve Worrall is set to face his brother Richie in tomorrow's Championship Jubilee League opener.

Poole begin their quest for glory in the newly-created event, when they head to Devon to face Plymouth Gladiators.

It marks the first of six group stage fixtures over the summer for Pirates, with Oxford Cheetahs and Birmingham Brummies also part of the southern section.

Gladiators currently top the embryonic standings, having beaten Birmingham at home, before losing against them at Perry Barr.

But Poole will be facing a patched-up Plymouth side tomorrow, with just four of their septet available for the fixture.

Edward Kennett remains a long-term absentee with an arm issue, while Michael Palm Toft is still struggling with the shoulder problem caused when he crashed out at Wimborne Road last month.

Danish star Hans Andersen is also absent, having dislocated his shoulder in a crash at Sheffield on Thursday.

Gladiators will operate rider replacement for Andersen, while former Pirates pair Richie Worrall and Lewis Kerr have been drafted in as guests.

Pirates boast their full one-to-seven.

The meeting at the Coliseum gets underway at 7pm.

Plymouth: Ben Barker, Alfie Bowtell, Lewis Kerr, rider replacement for Hans Andersen, Richie Worrall, Harry McGurk, Ben Morley.

Pirates: Steve Worrall, Drew Kemp, Danny King, Zach Cook, Richard Lawson, Ben Cook, Nathan Ablitt.
