Young guns given chance to shine as Wasps are forced to make late changes

London Wasps have been forced to withdraw full back Ben Jacobs ahead of their clash with Leeds at Headingley Carnegie this afternoon.

In his place England U20s and Academy full back Jack Wallace will make his third senior appearance and first start of the season in black and gold. On the bench, 18 year old Elliot Daly comes in for Wallace. Daly, a Whitgift School pupil and Academy member with England U16, U18 and U20 honours to his name, gathers his first inclusion in a senior match 23 after impressing with Wasps A league campaign this season.
