TEAM NEWS | Tom Willis returns for Wasps A to battle Gloucester at Broadstreet

Date: 7 Mar 2020


Tom Willis will make his long-awaited return to action for Wasps A against Gloucester United on Sunday in the Premiership Rugby Shield at Broadstreet RFC (kick-off 3pm).

The 21-year-old has recovered from a groin injury to start at number-eight in a squad that includes 13 first-team players, along with ten Academy players.

The young side will be led by 20-year-old Sam Wolstenholme while Morris, Sam Spink, Tim Cardall and Will Porter are all in the side after making short appearances from the bench in Saturday’s first-team win over Gloucester Rugby.

Wasps A made it back-to-back, bonus-point wins in late December as they saw off Sale Jets and Leicester Tigers A, while having also ran in 16 tries so far across their four matches.  

They sit level on 12 points with Gloucester and Northampton Wanderers in the Shield North table, while Worcester Cavaliers sit top with 20 points.

Tickets for the game are FREE for Wasps Season Members and also for under 16s, while being £5 for all others. Car parking is also free on-site at Broadstreet.
