Newcastle stick to winning formula

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

Dave Walder started at fullback ahead of Joe Shaw last week and he proved to be the difference between the two teams as he kicked 14 of his side's points in the 19-17 win.

The kicking ace remains in the No.15 jumper, with Phil Godman continuing at fly-half.

The last time Newcastle met Wasps at High Wycombe they went down 13-12, but Andrew is not bothered with history.

"We lost against Wasps at High Wycombe last season just after we'd turned the corner in March 2003, but our boys certainly have no hang-ups going down to High Wycombe," Andrew told the team's official website.

"They certainly have nothing to fear from the team and we've played well there in the past."
