Wasps swarm across London to face Saracens 

  • +1

Following their impressive home win over DMP Durham Sharks, this weekend Wasps are on the road, albeit a short one, to face London rivals Saracens. 

Last week’s showstopper performance totalled three hat-tricks from Dow, Boatmans and MacDonald, seventeen tries in total including one from Cooney on her debut in the black and gold.

With England set to play France and the Irish contingency back at the hive- Mather makes some changes to her line up.

In the forwards, Mather names a new front row combination as Maloney makes her first appearance for Wasps this season alongside Ransley and Muir. After her impressive try scoring debut last weekend, Cooney joins Burnfield in the second row. And to complete the Irish filled pack- Molloy will start at Seven alongside Kabeya and Crake, who earns her 90th cap for Wasps.

A new nine, ten combination in Wong and Williams lead the backs, with Captain Alder and Rowland outside of them in the centre. And, to complete the starting line up, Quansah, Boatman and Mason make up the back three.

Set to add fire to the finish, Afilaka, Stock, Monaghan and Caux make up your forward replacements. Sammy Graham also makes her first appearance this season alongside Williams to complete the squad.

The game will be played behind closed doors in line with government and RFU guidelines, however a live stream is available via the following link and as always the action can be followed on twitter.
