London Wasps boss Dai Young has made five changes to his starting line-up for Sunday's Challenge Cup visit of Viadana.

In the backs, Joe Carlisle starts at fly-half, Josh Bassett gets a start on the wing and Andrew Suniula starts in the centres, in the place of Andy Goode, Will Helu and Charlie Hayter respectively.

One of the changes in the pack is in the front row, with Simon McIntyre starting at loosehead in place of Matt Mullan. The other is at lock, where Tom Palmer starts in the place of Joe Launchbury.

"Sunday's game is all about retaining our 100% record in the pool stages. We want to qualify as high up the seeding as we can and, having scored 90 points against Viadana in Italy in round one of this competition, we will be looking for another bonus point victory this weekend," said Young.
