Team to play Gloucester

Dai Young has named his side that will travel to Kingsholm to face Gloucester in the final group stage game of the LV=Cup.

There are two changes in the backline, which see Chris Bell return to captain the side this weekend, joined in the centres by Andrea Masi, who will make his first start after returning from injury with a substitute appearance last Saturday.

Six changes in the pack leave just James Cannon and Rory Pitman in place from the forwards that started against London Irish last weekend. A totally changed front row of Ricky Reeves, Carlo Festuccia and Phil Swainston will pack down, with Esteban Lozada starting alongside Cannon at lock. Pitman, who starts at number eight, will be joined by Sam Jones and Ashley Johnson on the flanks.

On the bench, new scrum half signing Brett Sheehan is in line for his first appearance in black and gold. Wasps also retain the services of Kevin Davies, on loan from London Welsh.

Wasps team to play Gloucester at Kingsholm, kick off 15:00.
