Wanderers team news for trip to Coventry

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Piers Francis and Tom Wood will make their returns to play tonight as the Wanderers make the trip to Ivor Preece Field to face Wasps in the Premiership Rugby A League.

Unbeaten as yet as they look to defend their title, the Wanderers sit top of the table with the full quota of league points from their opening three games, their most recent bonus point win coming as they travelled to Worcester last week.

Returning to the side for the first time since injuring his jaw in Glasgow back in August, Piers Francis will spearhead a strong backline alongside Tom Stephenson, who captains the side. Tom Wood also makes his first outing of the season and his Wanderers debut at Broadstreet.

Wasps have had a tricky start to their Premiership Rugby A League campaign so far, having beaten only Sale Jets in their three matches so far and losing their season opener to Newcastle Falcons at Ivor Preece Field as well as Leicester Tigers A last Monday at Welford Road.

Kick off is at 7:30pm and supporters can follow the action as it happens at www.twitter.com/SaintsRugby
