What to watch for:
Gallagher Premiership rugby returns to Coventry Building Society Arena on Sunday 30 January when Wasps take on Saracens, kick off 3pm.
Wasps are expecting to have captain Joe Launchbury back from injury and in contention to play in this game. Launchbury returned to full training earlier this month as he builds up to his playing return following an ACL rupture last April.
Wasps fans may also get the chance to watch new signing Vincent Koch, ahead of the tighthead-prop's arrival from Saracens for next season.
Wasps went into their Heineken Champions Cup clash against Munster on Sunday without the services of Alfie Barbeary and Tom Willis due to head injuries suffered against Toulouse.
Wasps Men's Head Coach Lee Blackett was hopeful on Sunday that Barbeary would be able to team up with the England squad this week and that Willis would be fit for Sunday's visit of Saracens to the Coventry Building Society Arena.
Centre Ryan Mills was due to start his first Wasps game in 500 days at Thomond Park but didn't make the trip out to Ireland due to illness. Mills could be back in contention along with Jimmy Gopperth to play on Sunday.
Sunday's game against Munster saw Dan Robson make his return after two months out with a groin injury. He scored a try on his comeback and is expected to feature again this coming weekend.
Wasps lost Thomas Young and Tom West to head injuries either side of half-time on Sunday, adding to the club's list of injuries.
Young remained in Ireland overnight for further tests, but has now been discharged from hospital. An update has been provided by the club, you can read that by clicking here.
Blackett also confirmed this week that Dan Frost suffered a shoulder injury in the win against Toulouse. The 24-year-old, is Wasps' leading try scorer so far this season with six tries from his first seven Wasps appearances. Frost will miss this weekend's game and be bout for 4-6 weeks with the injury.
Saracens are the Gallagher Premiership's leading try scorers so far this season and currently lie second in the table.
The Saracens side is likely to feature ex-Wasps Alex Lozowski and Billy Vunipola, while Billy's brother Mako captained the side in their 45-24 win against London Irish on Sunday.

Wasps’ player Malakai Fekitoa has launched a fundraiser for home island crisis relief in tsunami-hit Tonga.
