Wasps v London Irish: Teams
At Adams Park, Saturday March 3, KO: 3pm
London Irish have named a relatively unchanged team for Saturday's Aviva Premiership match against London Wasps at Adams Park.
Nick Kennedy will again captain the side from the second row with Canadian Jebb Sinclair coming into the back row.
"Although the result didn't go our way last Sunday, it was a fantastic contest, we put in a strong performance and we were focused," said London Irish head coach Toby Booth.
"We need to show the same intent tomorrow to come away with a result."
Injury-hit Wasps have made four changes as they attempt to avoid a 10th consecutive Aviva Premiership defeat.
Joe Simpson and Rob Webber return from the England squad and they replace Nic Berry and Tom Lindsay, who drop to the bench.
Tighthead Simon McIntyre replaces Ben Broster and Sam Jones starts at number eight in the absence of Billy Vunipola who is out with an injury.
"Despite being down in numbers with a lot of players out, we've had a good week on the training pitch and we're looking forward to another game at home in front of a very vocal Adams Park crowd," said Wasps coach Dai Young.
