Correspondent 22nd Sep, 2021   0

WASPS have confirmed their 46-man first team squad and coaching structure for the 2021/22 campaign.

Lee Blackett’s side open the Gallagher Premiership season on Saturday at the Coventry Building Society Arena, with Bristol Bears the visitors (3pm).

Joe Launchbury will continue as club captain this season.

Head coach Blackett said: “We are really pleased with the group of players and coaches that we have got for the coming season.

“We think our squad has a good blend of experience and younger home-grown players, who have come through our Academy and are eager to keep improving.

“The new signings that we have bought in this summer have settled in brilliantly and we are looking forward to seeing them make their Wasps debuts in the coming months.

“Our pre-season preparations as a whole have gone well, and we cannot wait for the start of the new season.”
