Wasps name co-captains for Worcester A league clash
Date: 9 Apr 2018
Scrum half Will Porter and back-rower Tom Willis share the captaincy duties for Wasps as the A League concludes tonight.
Worcester Cavaliers are the visitors to Broadstreet (7.30pm kick off) for the final round of Northern Conference action.
Tonight’s visitors are seeking a seasonal double over their hosts following their 32-6 success at Sixways in October, but regardless of the result neither club is able to progress to the semi-finals.
Porter, who switches bench and starting roles with Craig Hampson, is the only change made to the back division which started against Northampton Wanderers last Monday.
This means Oxford University guest Dan Moor, who scored twice at Franklin’s Gardens, retains his place on the right wing.
Paul Doran Jones provides experience in the front five where he is joined by hooker TJ Harris and lock Marcus Garratt.
Willis starts at No.8 alongside Will Owen and Wasps under 18 Kieran Curran.
