Team to play Stade Français

Dai Young has named his team to play Stade Français this Saturday at Stade Jean-Bouin, in the second-leg of the European qualification decider.

Guy Thompson starts at number 8 in place of Nathan Hughes, who has returned to Fiji for his wedding, which was booked before he joined Wasps last year.

After the creation of the 7th place play-off, Hughes postponed returning to Fiji last week so he could join the squad in the first-leg against Stade. With guests having already booked flights to Fiji, it was not possible to re-schedule the date and everyone at the Club wishes him and Ella the very best for their big day.

Ed Jackson comes onto the bench, where the only other change is Charlie Davies, who returns after recovering from a head knock.

The following players are unavailable for selection due to injury: Jake Cooper-Woolley (foot), Sam Jones (concussion), Andrew Suniula (calf), and long-term injuries to Christian Wade (foot), Ben Jacobs (knee), Jack Moates (knee) and Will Taylor (bicep).
