The second round of the Amlin Challenge Cup sees Wasps welcome Bayonne to Adams Park for the third time in as many years in this competition, with both sides having comfortably won their opening games last weekend with bonus points.

Haskell is one of a number of changes to the squad which defeated Viadana by a record breaking 90-17 scoreline last weekend, with the result breaking the Club’s scoring record in Europe.

There’s an all new front row with Matt Mullan, Carlo Festuccia and Jake Cooper-Woolley all coming back into the team. In the backs, Andy Goode, Josh Bassett and Charlie Hayter all start in changes there from last weekend.

Joe Launchbury and Haskell are the new additions to the squad this weekend, with both taking their places on the bench.

Sam Jones, Tom Palmer, Ashley Johnson and Elliot Daly miss out with minor knocks while Hugo Southwell, Andrea Masi, Tom Varndell, Phil Swainston, Rory Pitman and James Bailey continue to work through their rehab programmes on their respective injuries.
