Robson, Launchbury & Hughes have missed quite a bit of rugby, so it's perfect opportunity for them.

Wasps are desperate for some form to try and stop their slide down the table. They need to build on their Saints win.
I think it's momentum for them. High risk - if our rotated squad beat them, then they could lose any feel good feeling after Saints

No’s. 1,3,10,13,14 & 15 have not really distinguished themselves for us this season, in some cases due to injury, so we need more impressive performances from those players in particular to make a game of it. Not many weaknesses in the Wasps lineup despite their unimpressive season to date & some quality returners.

Decent enough side for a dead rubber.

Out of interest why have we started converting these one off match related threads into Stickies? I'm not a fan of stickies but I see the benefit for information that you might want to routinely return through during the season (i.e injuries list). Match threads should surely just come .. and then go ....

Bath don't play well under pressure, but as this is a totally meaningless game I expect the team to perform well. Still don't expect to win though.

Don’t understand Atkins at 15 and Homer at 14 would prefer the other way round. Homer gives more in attack from fullback

Not a fan of stickied threads, I actually miss them more than I do normal ones.

I'm surprised Wasps are playing such a full strength team. Lose any to injury or 6N over the next 2/3 and they could be going into crunch Premiership time under baked?

Being done for financial reasons, we will soon get used to it.

It’s certainly a massive hassle to have to raise your eyeballs 3 degrees to the stickied post 3 up. Personally I like to raise my chin slightly.

I have no problem with it at all and if its raising money for charity and keeping the site going and giving PG more motivation to write his brilliant previews then it can only be a massive bonus. What's not to like?

There's no problem with putting the team in this thread, and no one even suggested there was one. I said I often miss sticky threads because my eyes have been trained to ignore them.

It isn't a case of it being a "hassle to raise my eyeballs 3 degrees up", just that I often miss the threads.

I know that we shouldn’t say it as they are all professionals etc. But I suspect that it will come down to pressure off vs ‘who wants it more’. Would be nice if they both just chucked it around like a baa-baas game to entertain the crowd, but I very much doubt it.
