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
