Wasps bid farewell to Adams Park with a home game against Castres as they look to make it ten points from ten in rounds three and four.

Wasps will head to Coventry for their first game in the Ricoh Arena next weekend, but want to sign off in style in High Wycombe.

Ben Jacobs and Andrea Masi team up in the centre, while Charlie Davies and Andy Goode continue their half-back partnership after last weekend’s win in the South of France.

“The players are fully focused on the 80 minutes of rugby ahead of them on Sunday, but we appreciate it will be a significant occasion for our supporters, as well as a significant game of rugby,” said director of rugby Dai Young.

“It would be nice to sign off at Adams Park with a great performance and a great win. It would be a fitting way to thank our fans for the support they’ve shown there over the years.

“This a huge match for us in Europe. We were really pleased with the bonus point win in the South of France last Sunday, but we know the job is only half done. An away win last week means nothing if we don’t back it up on Sunday.

“Castres have some really good individual players and if it clicks for them, they could be really dangerous. I’m expecting Castres to really give it their best shot and if we’re not concentrating fully for 80 minutes, it could be a banana skin for us. ”

Castres have made a few changes of their own, but don’t appear to have completely thrown in the towel despite three defeats in as many games so far in Europe.

The Top 14 strugglers will be without the likes of Sitiveni Sivivatu, Rory Kockott and R
