Team to play Harlequins

Dai Young has named his side that will travel to The Stoop on Sunday to face Harlequins in the thirteenth round of the Aviva Premiership.

There are ten changes to the team who faced Gloucester in the LV=Cup last weekend. In the backline, James Short makes his first appearance for the Club on the wing, after joining Wasps on loan in January. Joe Simpson returns to start at scrum half and links up with Andy Goode at ten, while Andrea Masi retains his place in the centre after returning from injury to make his first start last weekend.

Five changes in the pack leave just Carlo Festuccia, Sam Jones and Ashley Johnson in place from the forwards that started against Gloucester last weekend. Matt Mullan, who has returned from England duty, joins Jake Cooper-Woolley to pack down alongside Festuccia, while Tom Palmer starts alongside Kearnan Myall at lock. Jones and Johnson are joined by Haskell, who has recovered from illness to start at seven.

On the bench, new scrum half signing Brett Sheehan is due to make his second appearance in black and gold after making his debut last weekend.

Wasps team to play Harlequins at The Stoop, kick off 13:00.
