See both teams have a big injury list. Gonna make this a very interesting encounter. Great to see Sam Skinner getting his 1st premiership start with Toby & Tom making the match day 23. They've shone in the A League! Wishing them good luck!

Very exciting back three, I remember Jack Nowell running over Rob Miller in a previous encounter when Miller played fullback! We also have a very dynamic back row with some fantastic options off the bench. Wasps have lost some key players, Gopperth is coming back after injury and Miller is their cover at stand off! If we can keep the pill away from their wingers I reckon we should shade this one!

With our huge injury list of first teamers, I'm surprised how good that team looks.
Wasps have got the money so should have the depth of players, win or lose the teams are similarly hit with injuries, I would say we are slightly worse of so no excuses.

Thomas Young on the bench for Wasps ... hope he stays on it as he is proper quality

Have we suffered even more injuries or just rotation? ie Jack Yeandle, Jonny Hill, Matt Kvesic, Phil Dollman?

I hate to say it but despite their injury troubles also I think Wasps look the stronger team upfront. If they can get parity there then they may sneak it.

Pleased to see Turner given a chance at 15.

Excellent example of 'added value' in the Chiefs' pack. Of the 13 forwards in the squad, seven were signed from the Championship and another three came through Chiefs' junior ranks, leaving just three (Dennis, Armand, Salvi) signed as established players.

At last Shaun Malton makes the matchday 23.
If you get on the pitch, just play like you did at Worcester last season. At least you have more notice this time around.

If that's what both squads look like when injury-hit then that says a lot about both clubs *licks lips*

Aftermath of Worcester & playing on their plastic coconut pitch. They came off pretty battered & bruised.
