This weekend Wasps will be looking to build on some strong results as they travel to Darlington Mowden Park Sharks. Following a dominant performance at the Ricoh Arena last week, the black and gold face a difficult test up in the North East. With 6 changes to the starting line-up, Wasps will need to win to ensure they keep in touch with the leaders.

Irish international Cliodhna Moloney is set to make her first start for Wasps since joining in the summer, she’ll be joined in the front row by Hannah West who moves to prop and Kate Hallett (Sponsored by Inspire Hot Yoga)

Both Amy Wilson Hardy and Katie Mason (Sponsored by SNAP Sponsorship & Lion Academy) return to the backline, with Lizzie Goulden regaining the starting jersey at fly half, after coming off the bench last week.

Claire Molloy, who has scored four tries in her opening three appearances, replaces Nora Baltruweit who is on international duty for Germany.

Mica Evans & Kendall Templeman could both make their first appearances of the season for the 1st side off the bench. Both have impressed in the undefeated development side who play at 3pm on Saturday.

Wasps have picked up good results so far against sides lower in the table than them, with big victories over Bristol, Firwood and Worcester. However, they have fallen to two defeats against the top two sides. Last week the hosts put five tries past Richmond in front of a huge crowd at the Ricoh Arena.

Darlington Mowden Park Sharks currently lie in seventh position in the table, with wins against Worcester on the opening day and Richmond two weeks ago. Last week the Sharks felt the full force of a strong unbeaten Loughborough side, as they fell to a 59-3 loss.

The game will take place at the Northern Echo Arena as part of a double header with the men’s side. Wasps will be looking to spoil to party, as the home side hosts their annual Ladies day prior to the game.
