mmullan-wasps-3009

Director of Rugby Dai Young has named his side to face Harlequins at the Ricoh Arena this Sunday, kick off 2.30pm

In the pack, Matt Mullan captains the side from the front row, with Ashley Johnson making his first start of the season at hooker and Kearnan Myall gets the nod in the second row.

The backline sees just one change from last weekend, with Dan Robson starting in the nine shirt, and Joe Simpson moving to the bench.

Ahead of the game, Dai Young said: “Harlequins will come here full of confidence, after a superb result last weekend when they beat the defending Premiership and European Champions, Saracens. Quins showed everyone what they’re capable of and we’re very aware of how much talent they have in their ranks and how dangerous they can be.

“There’s been a good buzz around the training ground as you can imagine, but we’re also realistic enough to know we rode our luck last weekend for the win against Saints, so we need to make sure we’re much better this weekend and not rely on lady luck to get over the line. I was proud of the players’ endeavour, attitude and desire, but we have to be better within our structures this week if we’re to get the result we want.”

Wasps team to face Harlequins at the Ricoh Arena, Sunday 2 October, KO 2.30pm.
