Wasps will travel to Worcester on Sunday hoping to close the gap to the other play-off contenders. On the back of a strong performance at home to Firwood Waterloo, the visitors sit 9 points off Loughborough Lighting in third position.
The visitors were pushed hard by Worcester earlier this season at Twyford Avenue. In round 4 the Valkyries frustrated Wasps for large parts of the game. This time out those in black and gold will want to ensure they are on the top of their game to seal a strong victory.
Wasps make only one change to the starting line-up that sealed an emphatic 34-0 victory last weekend. Nora Baltruweit returning at lock for her 9th appearance of the season.
Among the replacements Wasps are delighted to welcome Amy Cokayne to the squad following her graduation this week as an RAF Officer. The England international played a huge role last season with 12 starts and three tries to her name. This will be her first appearance in black and gold this season.
The hosts this weekend have struggled in the Tyrrell’s Premier 15s thus far and find themselves bottom of the table. They have yet to pick up their first win of the season so far but were within striking distance of a win against Richmond last weekend, and only lost by one point against Firwood Waterloo back in Round 9.
Wasps will be hoping for a repeat of their last trip to Sixways were they put 50 points on the board. With a difficult fixture before the Christmas break against Saracens next week, Wasps will want to ensure they put out a statement for the champions next week with a strong performance at Worcester.
