ELLIOTT Stooke is set to make his 150th Premiership appearance as Wasps make two changes from their last league outing ahead of their clash with Gloucester tonight.
Stooke will achieve the landmark against the side he made his Premiership debut with back in 2014 – and has also featured for London Irish and Bath.
Head coach Lee Blackett has made two personnel changes and one positional switch from the game against Harlequins ahead of tonight’s clash at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
Josh Bassett starts at outside centre for the first time in his career with Marcus Watson playing on the left-wing and Thomas Young returning to the side at openside flanker.
Bassett forms a centre partnership with Michael Le Bourgeois whilst Ali Crossdale continues at full-back with Zach Kibirige on the right wing.
Young returns at openside flanker after his time away with Wales and is joined by captain Brad Shields and Tom Willis in the back-row.
Stooke partners Vaea Fifita in the second-row whilst Robin Hislop returns from Scotland duty to start at loosehead prop, with Gabriel Oghre and Jeffery Toomaga-Allen making up the front row.
Will Porter and Jacob Umaga form the half-back partnership.
Elsewhere, on the bench, there are three notable returnees from injury as Alfie Barbeary, Dan Frost and Jimmy Gopperth are all included.
Francois Hougaard joins Gopperth as the other backs replacement with Gordon Reid, Elliot Millar-Mills, Sebastian de Chaves and Nizaam Carr the other forwards in reserve.
