Sports Mole previews Sunday's Aviva Premiership clash between struggling London Irish and high-flying Wasps at the Madejski Stadium.

London Wasps can make it six Aviva Premiership wins in a row on Sunday when they travel to struggling London Irish.

Dai Young's side have been in dominant domestic form in recent weeks and currently sit level on points with fourth-placed Gloucester Rugby.

Meanwhile, struggling Irish can pull further away from the relegation zone with a victory at the Madejski Stadium following Sale Sharks' defeat to Harlequins on Friday night.

Chris Hala'ufia and Ofisa Treviranus both return for the hosts, while Jebb Sinclair is rested.

Will Taylor makes his first league start for Wasps, with Jonathan Poff and Elliot Daly also coming into the side.
