Palmer returns as Wasps host Saints

Tom Palmer returns to the starting line-up as London Wasps resume Aviva Premiership action against Northampton Saints at Adams Park this Saturday (KO 15.00)

Palmer, who has spent over three months on the sidelines with injury, returns to partner Marco Wentzel in the team to take on fourth-placed Northampton Saints.

London Wasps also welcome back their international contingent this week. Joe Launchbury, James Haskell and Andrea Masi all return to black and gold following their efforts in the 6 Nations. Dai Young has resisted the urge to name those three returning players in the starting team as they take their places on the bench.

Other returnees include Chris Bell, who starts in the centres for his 150th Premiership appearance, and Billy Vunipola, who starts at number eight.

Another landmark sees Joe Simpson, who starts at scrum half, line up for his 100th appearance in black and gold.
