Daly, Johnson and Palmer return for Tigers clash

Director of Rugby Dai Young has named his side to play Leicester Tigers this Sunday at Adams Park, KO 2pm.

Elliot Daly, Tom Palmer and Ashley Johnson all return to the starting team for this weekend’s Aviva Premiership fixture.

Ben Jacobs is given the nod in the centres, partnering Captain Chris Bell, while Christian Wade returns from his time away with England to take his place on the wing.

London Wasps host the reigning Aviva Premiership champions with a proud record of victories against Tigers at Adams Park going back to 2007.

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said “The players know that they are in for a tough challenge on Sunday afternoon but after two good wins in Europe there is a lot of confidence going back into domestic action.”

“At this stage of the season the table can change overnight and a win for us would see us shoot up the table. Both sides will be fighting tooth and nail for the points on offer and we know that we will have to be at our most accurate to come out on top.”
