11:45 22 September 2012
Gloucester Director of Rugby Nigel Davies is expecting a tough test when his side face London Wasps.
Dai Young’s side picked up their first win of the season over struggling London Irish and the Kingsholm side face a difficult challenge against the Londoners.
“We know the size of the challenge and there are never any easy games in the Aviva Premiership, that’s for sure,” Davies said.
“Wasps play a particular way and it’s really challenging every week to come in and look at the respective styles of play of the teams that we’re coming up against.
“But our focus is absolutely on ourselves and getting our own game right but with a slight variation depending on who we’re playing. It’s heads on this Saturday making sure we put in the performance and get the result.”
Rob Cook and Sione Kalamafoni will make their first start for Gloucester against Wasps.
