Wasps team to play Gloucester

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young has named his starting line-up to face Gloucester at Kingsholm on Saturday, September 22 (KO 15.15)

There are three changes in the starting line-up.

Tommy Bell gets his first start for Wasps in place of skipper Hugo Southwell at fullback who misses out with a hand injury this week; James Haskell starts in place of Joe Launchbury, who is out with a knock, while Zak Taulafo starts after this try-scoring impact from the bench last weekend.

Marco Wentzel captains the side this weekend as Wasps go in search of a first win on the road this season following a bonus point victory over London Irish at Adams Park last weekend.

Young said: “We are looking for a consistent 80 minute performance, which we haven’t put together yet in any of our three games. We have a chance of going down there and winning if we do that well, and if we don’t they are a physical side with backs who can really punish you.”
