Wasps welcome London Rivals Saracens to Twyford Avenue 

  • +1

Following their agonising defeat to Harlequins last weekend- Wasps prepare to take on top of the table team and London rivals saracens.

Last weekend Wasps suffered a late defeat to Harlequins who sealed the win with a penalty in the final three minutes of play to end the game 20-19.

In their last meeting with Saracens- Wasps just missed out on the win after an incredible second half come back. This week they will be looking to repeat that second half performance from the off building on lessons learnt from last week’s defeat for the win.

In the forwards line up, Mather names eight changes and a full reshuffle with Muir, West and Stock in the front row, Burnfield returning from injury alongside Monaghan in the second and Crake moving back to no.8 alongside Kabeya and Mitchelson to form the back row. To note- Crake will also make her 50th Premier 15s appearance this Saturday.

The starting back line up remains as it did last week, but amid the replacements we see the return of Kildunne and a season debut for Balogun.

In line with RFU and Government guidelines this fixture will be played behind closed doors so be sure to keep up to date with all the match activity via our social media channels. The game will also be streamed live and can be watched from the comfort of your sofa via the below links.
