Team news: Wasps v Rovigo

London Wasps have named their side to face Rovigo this weekend.

Dai Young has made three changes to the starting team that lost to Leicester at Welford Road last weekend for the change over to the Amlin Challenge Cup.

Two changes in the pack see James Harris replace Tinus DuPlessis, who is not eligible to play in Europe, and Joe Burton come into the side in the place of the injured Richard Birkett.

In the backs, Jack Wallace is set to make his European debut, earning astarting place in the back three alongside Richard Haughton and Hugo Southwell.

Now in second place in Pool 3 with 14 points, following Bayonne’s 12-6 win away to Bordeaux on Thursday night, which put them top of the pool on 17 points, Wasps travel to Rovigo searching for a win that would put them back in the controlling seat going into the final round of pool stage games.
