Chris Bell captains Wasps

A number of changes have been made to the team that lost out to Saracens last week in the first round of the competition.

A complete change to the centre partnership sees Chris Bell return to the side alongside Ben Jacobs. Phil Swainston and Neil Cochrane join Ricky Reeves in the front row and in the second row Esteban Lozada comes into the starting line up alongside James Cannon.

Jack Moates makes his first competitive start at scrumhalf for the men in black and gold since his arrival this summer, whilst youngster Tom Howe makes his first start this season on the wing after coming off the bench last week.

Jonah Holmes again starts on the wing following an impressive performance last weekend where he was nominated for the LV= Breakthrough Player Award
