It was a tough week in the West for Wasps Ladies, narrowly losing to Gloucester Hartpury by 3 points in a physical game. The speed of Tova Derk, magic footwork of Abby Dow, strength of Sarah Mitchelson and boot of Lizzie Goulen landed Wasps with 19 points just shy of Gloucester with 22.
This week the swarm returns to Twyford Avenue ready to face DMP. The team sees some changes starting in the front row with Hannah West moving into Hooker and Mica Evans pulling on the starting Jersey at prop, joined by Alex Powell at four. And in the backs, Hannah Edwards comes in to start at 10 with a switch up in the back three as Abby Dow jumps over to spread some magic on the wing and Katie Mason at fullback. Again we see huge depth and strength in the team from start to end with the likes of Dodd, Mitchelson and Templeman amongst the finishers.
Kick off for the 1XV is 2.15pm and 3.00pm for the 2XV, make sure to get yourself down to Twyford avenue and support! Live updates as always through the twitter feed @waspsladies.
