Tom West goes straight into Wasps’ starting line-up as one of six changes made for Sunday’s trip to Worcester Warriors.

The loosehead prop was released from the England squad and features in a forward pack that also sees Levi Douglas and Ben Morris in starting positions.

Wasps’ pursuit of a first win in three games after defeats at home to Harlequins and Northampton Saints has been boosted by the return of Josh Bassett, who missed both of those games.

Matteo Minozzi switches to fullback while Rob Miller, a tryscorer against Saints, is left out of the 23-man squad.

Brad Shields captains Wasps in the absence of Joe Launchbury, Thomas Young and Dan Robson while Sione Vailanu is set for his first minutes since September, as he takes his place on the bench.

Worcester Warriors have lost their last 12 matches against Wasps, stretching back to their 29-23 victory at Sixways in March 2013.
