Sale Sharks vs Wasps Live Stream & TV Channel Premiership Rugby Cup 2018 Full HD
Sale make a change at back row for the visit of Wasps to the AJ Bell Stadium.
Ben Curry replaces Josh Beaumont, with teenager Arron Reed is on the bench.
Wasps full-back Willie Le Roux returns from international duty with South Africa to make his first start of the season, one of six changes from last Sunday’s narrow win against Leicester.
Skipper Elliot Daly moves to outside centre alongside Michael Le Bourgeois, but club captain Joe Launchbury is out with a short-term knee injury.
Zurabi Zhvania gets a first start at loosehead prop, while Marcus Watson makes his first start of the season on the wing, in place of Christian Wade.
Sharks youngster Reed, 19, who has been in good scoring form for National One neighbours Sale FC, made Anglo-Welsh Cup appearances against Worcester and Saracens last November but is yet to make his Premiership debut.
Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond:
“Wasps are one of the super teams of the Premiership, with star players all through the squad, and playing really well again this season.
“As always, the competitive nature of Premiership rugby never fails to surprise. Although it was probably our best performance of the season, we were disappointed that we didn’t manage to come away with anything at Exeter.
“It’s crucial to get your detail right and ensure that you pick up points from your home games. I’m confident that, if we continue improving in the vein we’ve displayed, we’ll be a highly competitive side over the season.”
