London Wasps Director of Rugby, Warren Gatland, has named his side for this Sunday’s Zurich Premiership match against the Newcastle Falcons, kick-off 3pm.
For the first time this season, the starting XV is unchanged.
The only change is on the bench. Rob Howley returns after missing last Sunday’s game due to a slight back strain, while Mark Lock replaces John Hart (slight shoulder injury).
Gatland said, “ We have gone two games without conceding a try and have won the last three in a row. It’s important that we keep this winning momentum during November. Falcons are a strong side and will be looking to build on their win over Bath. We expect a battle and are well prepared”.
