Wasps team to host Leicester Tigers on Wednesday

Date: 8 Sep 2020

Lee Blackett has named his side for Wasps’ Gallagher Premiership Round 19 match with Leicester Tigers at Ricoh Arena on Wednesday.

Kieran Brookes returns from the shoulder injury he sustained in the first game back against Northampton Saints to start at tighthead-prop.

Newly promoted first team squad member, 19-year-old Alfie Barbeary is named at blindside flanker for his first Premiership start.

There is one potential Wasps debutant in the 23, as new signing Levi Douglas is named as a replacement.

Centre Sam Spink is also in line to make his first appearance since the restart from the bench, after returning from a groin injury.
