Myall to make competitive debut

Myall appeared for Wasps in pre-season but an ankle injury kept him out of the opening league games. He replaces Tom Palmer to pack down alongside Joe Launchbury, with Palmer not having quite recovered from an arm injury picked up against Exeter last weekend.

Myall’s inclusion is one of four changes to the starting team.

After positive impacts off the bench last weekend, Ben Jacobs and Charlie Davies come into the team, while Italian hooker Carlo Festuccia also makes his first competitive debut.

Nathan Hughes and Joe Carlisle are named on the bench.

On the changes to the side, London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “Charlie Davies and Ben Jacobs both played well off the bench last weekend and deserve their chance to start. We’re looking forward to seeing what Carlo Festuccia can bring to us up front with his huge international experience – he will certainly bring some added physicality. Nathan Hughes comes onto the bench having done well in the A games in recent weeks and this is a game we are looking forward to. We’re expecting a big physical challenge against Sale Sharks so we will certainly need to front up.”
