Wasps team to play London Irish

ChrisBellWaspsTwickers

Dai Young has named his side to face London Irish in the LV=Cup on Sunday 9 November at Adams Park, kick off 2pm.

The side once again sees a mixture of experienced first team players alongside a handful of up-and-coming talent from the senior academy.
 
The starting fifteen is boosted by the arrival of Chris Bell in the centres and Guy Thompson at number eight. Edd Shervington also gets a start this weekend, having made his return from injury last weekend.
 
On the bench there are a host of familiar names ready to make their impact. Ashley Johnson once again covers the hooker spot and he is joined by John Yapp, Jake Cooper-Woolley, James Gaskell, Nathan Hughes, Joe Simpson, Elliot Daly and Sailosi Tagicakibau, who all take spots on the bench.
 
Ahead of the game, Dai Young said "We were disappointed not to come away from the AJ Bell Stadium with a win last weekend and this Sunday's game gives us a great opportunity to go back into the next block of Aviva Premiership fixtures with a bit of a spring in our step.
 
"We have made a select few changes to last weekend's starting side but the bench has been significantly bolstered, with a number of regular starters ready to make themselves known as replacements.”

Tickets for the game are still available to purchase via the Wasps Online Ticket Office.
