Wasps Name Side For Quarter Final Tie With Leinster

Director of Rugby Dai Young has named his Wasps side to take on Leinster Rugby in the European Champions Cup Quarter Final this Saturday.

Wasps welcome back England internationals Joe Launchbury, Elliot Daly and Nathan Hughes, alongside James Haskell who made his club return last Sunday against Worcester Warriors.

Daly will join an otherwise unchanged backline, when he lines up outside Jimmy Gopperth who is set to make his 50th Wasps appearance this Saturday. Kurtley Beale, Christian Wade and Willie Le Roux are the back three, with Danny Cipriani and Dan Robson the half backs.

Skipper Joe Launchbury and Kearnan Myall form the second row partnership, with Haskell packing down as blindside flanker, Thomas Young on the openside and Nathan Hughes at No. 8.
