Wasps welcome back spectators for Loughborough fixture

  • +1

It was the green light we had all been waiting for! This weekend sees the return of spectators back to Twyford Avenue as Wasps take on Loughborough Lightning.

This weekend’s fixture is set to be a stormer with just 4 points between the two teams in the table- Loughborough currently on top at 3rd. And, following the end of lockdown 2.0 and the changes to government and RFU guidelines, it is with great excitement that spectators are welcomed back, under covid measures, to watch what promises to be the game of the round.

Mather has named her team and names three additions and five changes to the starting line up. In the forwards Crake moves from second row to front row alongside Muir and Maloney who returns from Ireland camp. We also welcome back Cooney to join Burnfield in the second row and to complete the pack Kabeya, Molloy and Millar-Mills form your back row.

Captain Alder leads from 12 with MacDonald and Jones inside her. Wilson Hardy makes her first start at outside centre and Williams joins Dow on the wing. Try of the week winner, Kildunne, completes the starting line up at 15.

Set to add some spice to the finish Afilaka, Stock, Ironton, MOnaghan and double centurion Mitchelson are your forwards replacements, with Graham, Rowland and Quansah as your backs.

Tickets for this weekend’s match are available at until Midnight Friday 4th December with limited availability. Spectators will be asked to adhere to covid guidelines so please make sure to read the terms of admittance before joining us.
