Wasps side to face Gloucester

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young has made three changes from last weekend’s team for this Saturday’s game against Gloucester.

Nathan Hughes and Charlie Hayter take the spots of Ed Jackson and Ben Jacobs, while James Haskell makes his first start of the season, taking the number 7 shirt as Guy Thompson shifts to the bench.

Other than that the side is unchanged from the team that beat Leicester Tigers last weekend, as Young’s men go in search of a fourth win in a row in all competitions.

Director of Rugby Dai Young said “The squad are all fully aware of the challenge we face this weekend. Kingsholm is a tough place to go to and that has been reflected in our visits there in recent years. However, for us, this game presents an opportunity to string together four wins on the bounce in all competitions and to back up last weekend’s win at Adams Park.”
