Wasps Rugby Discussion / Team For Saturday
« on: December 03, 2021, 11:59:29 AM »
Lee Blackett has named his side to travel to Sixways to face Worcester Warriors in Gallagher Premiership Round 10 on Saturday.

There are four personnel changes and one positional switch from Wasps’ last game against Gloucester.

Marcus Watson returns at full back, after being a late withdrawal against the Cherry and Whites.

Jimmy Gopperth and Alex McHenry form an all-new centre partnership, as Josh Bassett reverts back to the wing.

Zach Kibirige keeps his place on the right wing, while Will Porter once again forms the half-back partnership with Jacob Umaga.

The only other change sees Dan Frost start at hooker, with Bomber Hislop and Jeffery Toomaga-Allen propping down either side of him.

The rest of the pack is unchanged, captain Brad Shields is joined by Thomas Young and Tom Willis in the back-row. Elliott Stooke is paired with Vaea Fifita in the second-row once more.

On the bench, Tom West returns from injury. Just like last week, it is a 6-2 forwards-to-backs bench-split, as Sam Wolstenholme joins Matteo Minozzi as the backs replacements. Gabriel Oghre, Elliot Millar-Mills, Seb de Chaves, Nizaam Carr and Alfie Barbeary are the other forwards in reserve.

Yep early but got here three hours of joyless driving.

Salting the A14 as we came up which is not a good sign. Anecdote only got a part menu with limited choice. Pitch looking in good nick. Bloody cold too.

Safe travels in the dark anyone still travelling- stadium just had a fire drill.
