Tom de Glanville returns as only change for Wasps test

7 January 2021

Tom de Glanville returns to action and is the only change to the Blue, Black and White side looking to overturn Wasps in Round 6 of the Gallagher Premiership on Friday evening (kick-off 19:45, live on BT Sport 2).

Director of Rugby Stuart Hooper makes just the one change to the side that faced Leicester just five days ago with de Glanville coming in at full-back.

With the 21-year-old back in the starting XV, Anthony Watson moves to the wing, replacing Semesa Rokoduguni. 

The forward pack remains unchanged with Beno Obano, Tom Dunn and Will Stuart making up the front row. Captain Charlie Ewels and Josh McNally start at lock with Taulupe Faletau on blindside, Sam Underhill on openside and Zach Mercer in at No. 8.

Rhys Priestland and Ben Spencer continue their partnership at fly-half and scrum-half respectively with Cameron Redpath and Jonathan Joseph outside them in midfield. 

Ruaridh McConnochie joins Watson on the opposite wing with de Glanville making up the backfield.
