Elliot Daly moves to the wing this weekend

Hugo Southwell returns to captain the side from fullback, in a starting line-up that shows six changes in all from the side who beat Bayonne last time out.

With the league’s top try-scorer Tom Varndell missing out to a minor foot injury this weekend, Elliot Daly shifts to the wing while Dai Young once again names the same mid-field and half-back partnership

Up front Zak Taulafo moves across to loose-head with Phil Swainston returning on the other side of the scrum, while T Rhys Thomas gets the nod at hooker. Newly capped England international Joe Launchbury returns to partner Marco Wentzel in the second-row, while Ashley Johnson is also back in, packing down in the number 6 shirt in a strong looking back-row alongside James Haskell and Billy Vunipola.

Tickets are still available for the game through the London Wasps ticket office.
