Round three of the Premiership’s restart kicks off with this top-four clash
Wasps v Sale live stream: How to watch the Premiership match online from anywhere
The third round of the Gallagher Premiership’s restart kicks off at the Ricoh Arena, where Wasps host Sale Sharks this evening (kick-off 5.30pm).
These two teams have had contrasting fortunes since the league resumed. Wasps have triumphed in both their fixtures, making it five straight Premiership wins – all with a try bonus point. Sale, though, have lost to Harlequins and Exeter to slip from second to fourth.
The Sharks haven’t lost three successive league matches since 2018 and have also won their last three games against Wasps – can they make it four tonight?
Wasps have made only one change to the starting XV that beat Worcester, Jeff Toomaga-Allen replacing the injured Kieran Brookes in the front row, but Steve Diamond has made eight changes to the Sharks match-day 23 as he rotates during this busy period (it was originally nine but Daniel du Preez failed a late fitness test and was replaced by Jono Ross).
Wasps: Matteo Minozzi; Zach Kibirige, Malakai Fekitoa, Jimmy Gopperth, Josh Bassett; Jacob Umaga, Dan Robson; Ben Harris, Tommy Taylor, Jeff Toomaga-Allen, Joe Launchbury (captain), Will Rowlands, Jack Willis, Thomas Young, Brad Shields.
Replacements: Tom Cruse, Tom West, Jack Owlett, Tim Cardall, Sione Vailanu, Ben Vellacott, Charlie Atkinson, Ryan Mills.
Sale: Luke James; Denny Solomona, Connor Doherty, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Arron Reed; AJ MacGinty, Will Cliff; Ross Harrison, Curtis Langdon, Jake Cooper-Woolley, Matt Postlethwaite, James Phillips, Cameron Neild, Ben Curry (captain), Jono Ross.
Replacements: Ewan Ashman, Valery Morozov, Coenie Oosthuizen, Jean-Luc du Preez, Lood de Jager, Faf De Klerk, Sam James, Tom Roebuck.
