Date: 25 Mar 2019



Wasps A have named their squad to take on Northampton Wanderers in Round 7 of the Premiership Rugby Shield at Franklin’s Gardens this Monday night (kick-off 7pm).

First-team back row Alex Rieder is named among the replacements as he prepares to make his long-awaited comeback from a knee injury after 13 months on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, first-team players Ross Neal, Michael Le Bourgeois, Craig Hampson, Simon McIntyre, Kearnan Myall, Ben Morris and Joe Atkinson start, with Antonio Harris, Tom West and Rieder on the bench.

Neal starts in the back three alongside Academy players Callum Sirker and Cameron Anderson while Le Bourgeois is given the nod at centre next to Sam Spink. Hampson partners Jacob Umaga in the half backs.

Academy hooker Gabriel Oghre skippers the side in the front row next to Biyi Alo and McIntyre while Myall is joined by Tom Cardall in the second row.

Morris and Atkinson link up with England Under 20s star Tom Willis in the back row.

Tickets for the game are available on the gate for £5 for adults and £2 for under 16s. Due to an event taking place in the Rodber Bar, all supporters coming to the game must park in Car Park D. Seating will be in the Church’s Stand with bar facilities only available in the Marquee bar – disabled seating will be available in the Church’s Stand also.
