Team News: London Wasps v Bath

The London Wasps side to play Bath this Sunday at Adams Park (KO 15.00) in the Aviva Premiership has been named.

There’s a return to action for Christian Wade and James Haskell, while Stephen Jones comes into the starting line-up. In a positional switch, Elliot Daly is back at outside centre having featured on the wing and at fullback in the two most recent games.

London Wasps go into the game on good form, with five wins in their last seven games in the Aviva Premiership and a 100% record at Adams Park this season. However they have already been beaten by Bath this season – 30-23 in September at The Rec – and Club captain Hugo Southwell says his side are very wary of the challenge on their hands.

“They beat us earlier this season so they will come up here confident they can get a win. They’re a very strong side defensively so any chances we get we’re going to have to take" said Southwell.

"We’ve got nine points from our two games over the festive period so far and we know that another win this weekend would be a huge boost, but we can’t expect it to happen – we’ve got to go out there and really front up.”

Tickets for the game against Bath this Sunday are still available via the London Wasps Ticket Office Hotline on 0844 225 2990 or online here.
