Wasps team to face Bath Rugby on Friday

Date: 7 Jan 2021

 

Lee Blackett has named his Wasps side to travel to Bath in Gallagher Premiership Round Six on Friday.  

There is just one personnel change to the starting 15 that beat Exeter Chiefs last time out.

Thomas Young comes back into the starting side at openside flanker. That move sees Jack Willis switch to number eight, replacing brother Tom Willis, who shifts to the bench.

Joining Tom Willis amongst the replacements there are welcome returns from injury for Brad Shields and Marcus Watson, who if brought on will make his 50th appearance for Wasps.
