Wasps

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Gallagher Premiership -

Key man El­liot Daly Best sign­ing Brad Shields Ris­ing star Jack Wil­lis

Best-case sce­nario Con­sis­tency has to be an aim for Dai Young’s side this sea­son and if they can tighten up de­fen­sively they will be aim­ing for the play-offs and a re­turn to the Pre­mier­ship fi­nal. In a tough Cham­pi­ons Cup group, a win over Le­in­ster would set up Wasps for a bright sea­son.

Worst-case sce­nario If play­ers be­come fa­tigued by a dif­fi­cult Cham­pi­ons Cup cam­paign and the squad suf­fer in­juries, Wasps could fall out of the top four. KR
