Wasps Team to play Gloucester Rugby

Wasps’ Director of Rugby Dai Young has named his side to take on Gloucester Rugby at Kingsholm this Saturday, in Round 15 of the Aviva Premiership (KO 3pm).

The only change to the starting line-up from last Sunday’s win against Harlequins comes in the front row, where Edd Shervington starts at hooker.

Simon McIntyre, Sam Jones and Ruaridh Jackson return from injury to take a place on the bench. Wasps also welcome back from RBS 6 Nations’ duty Wales lock Bradley Davies and Italy tighthead Lorenzo Cittadini.

Ahead of the trip to Kingsholm, Dai Young said: "We’ve put together a good run over recent weeks and we certainly have momentum, but we’re not getting ahead of ourselves. After 14 games last season we were in 4th place with 41 points and this season after 14 games we’re third with 42 points, so we are in a very similar position to where we were last year. Unfortunately we fell away last year, so this year we’ve just got to keep our foot on the pedal. We haven’t achieved anything yet and know there’s still a lot of hard work to do.

"We all know how tough a place Kingsholm is to get a result and Gloucester are also in really good form. I think they’ve only lost once at home in their last nine games, so we know we will need to be at our best if we are to keep our good run going."
