Team to play Gloucester

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young has made three changes from the starting team who beat Bayonne in Europe last time out.

The changes see Joe Burton replace the injured John Hart at number 8 while Matt Everard and Ben Broster have recovered from minor knocks to start at flanker and prop respectively.

Fly-half Nick Robinson, who joined Wasps this year from Gloucester, says he is looking forward to returning to Kingsholm.

He said: “I know that it is a great place to play and even more so in a Boxing Day game in front of a sell-out crowd. Those big occasions are what you play for. The supporters at Kingsholm are very passionate and they are very vocal. They have got used to, and expect to see good rugby. We will need a big performance to get a result, as Gloucester are always a formidable side at home. For us to go down there and get a win we are going to have to be on top of all aspects of our game.”
