Wasps A team to face Coventry tomorrow (Butts Park Arena, 2pm)

Date: 24 Aug 2018


Six members of Dai Young’s senior squad are included in tomorrow’s Wasps line-up to face Coventry at the Butts Park Arena (2pm kick off).

This list is headed by experienced scrum half Joe Simpson, who partners one of the club’s recent stand-out Premiership Sevens performers Sunni Jardine at half-back.

Elsewhere in the backline, new signings Ross Neal and Ambrose Curtis wear black-and-gold for a second time, after making debuts in Connacht last weekend.

Pacy full back Owain James also makes a return to the Butts two years after appearing in National One for Coventry on a dual-registration basis.

England Saxons second row Kearnan Myall, former Nottingham back-rower Ben Morris and England U20 prop Tom West add experience to an otherwise youthful pack in which Tom Willis captains the side from No.8.
