Varndell and Johnson return for The Stinger

Dai Young has named his team for The Stinger.

London Wasps face Gloucester Rugby at Twickenham Stadium on Easter Saturday, kick off 15:15.

Wasps welcome back Tom Varndell to the wing after a three month injury lay-off, having recovered from a bicep tear.

There is also a return to action in the back row for Ashley Johnson, after three weeks out with a fractured cheekbone.

Andrea Masi, Joe Simpson, Jake Cooper-Woolley and Kearnan Myall have all recovered from knocks to make the starting lineup, while Joe Launchbury and James Haskell also start after being rested last weekend.

Over 35,000 rugby fans are expected at Twickenham Stadium for the Easter Saturday clash as both sides continue to battle for the 7th place European playoff spot.
