Young changes three for Chiefs

Dai Young has made three changes to the starting side ahead of this Saturday’s game at Sandy Park, kick off 3pm.

With the international schedule in full flow, Dai Young has made three changes to the starting side for this weekend’s game against Exeter Chiefs.

James Haskell is ruled out, having been named to start for England against Samoa, and Sam Jones starts in his place. The other two changes see Bradley Davies and Lorenzo Cittadini return to the side, after appearing for their countries in recent weeks, to take starting spots in black and gold.

On the bench, Guy Thompson gets a place among the substitutes as back row cover and Charlie Davies returns from injury to take a place on the bench as the replacement scrum half.

Ahead of the game, Dai Young said "Exeter are currently sitting second in the Aviva Premiership table and that is not by chance. They are a very well-balanced side, who are very physical but also play a good brand of rugby when they attack."

"Both teams go into the game on the back of good results and we have to focus on ourselves and producing the kind of performance we know we are capable of."

Wasps team to play Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park, Saturday 22 November, KO 3pm.
