RUGBY UNION AMLIN CHALLENGE CUP POOL FOUR LONDON WASPS V BAYONNE ADAMS PARK JAMES HASKELL

Openside: James Haskell

Dai Young has made a number of changes to the starting line-up for Wasps' Challenge Cup quarter-final at home to Gloucester.

The changes include the return of England internationals Joe Launchbury and Matt Mullan.

Changes are made to both wings with James Short, who was unable to play last weekend due to his loan agreement, taking the place of Tom Howe. Will Helu, who has recovered from injury, replaces Jonah Holmes who is not ERC registered.

The final two changes come in the back row, where Sam Jones returns to the starting line-up at six, with James Haskell moving to seven in place of Guy Thompson who moves to the bench and will face a fitness test ahead of Sunday's game.

Meanwhile, Gloucester have made three changes to their starting line up.

There are two changes to the pack as Dan George replaces the injured Darren Dawidiuk at hooker, and James Hudson returns in the second row in place of Will James.

Ryan Mills hasn't recovered from the knock he picked up at Exeter Chiefs last Saturday, so Billy Twelvetrees takes over at fly-half. Mike Tindall moves across to inside centre and Henry Trinder comes in to wear the number thirteen shirt.
