Sports Mole previews Sunday's Aviva Premiership clash between Wasps and Sale at Adams Park.

Sale Sharks will be looking for only their second win of the season on Sunday when they make the trip to London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership.

The league's bottom-placed side have had little to cheer about in the last few months with nine defeats coming in their first 10 games of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Wasps haven't had it all their own way as of late with two losses in their previous three but they remain unbeaten at home this term.

The big team news is that Danny Cipriani has been left out of the Sale squad due to what director of rugby John Mitchell believed were his defensive deficiencies.

Cipriani's omission sees Nick Macleod return at fly-half, while Marc Jones is given his first start following an absence through injury.

The hosts have made six changes in total with Hugo Southwell and Phil Swainston two of the new faces coming into the starting XV. However, Tom Varndell misses out with a foot injury.

Recent form




Wasps: Southwell, Daly, Masi, Bell, Wade, Jones, Simpson, Taulafo, Rhys Thomas, Swainston, Launchbury, Wentzel, Johnson, Haskell, Vunipola
Replacements: Lindsay, Payne, Taylor, Cannon, Poff, Davies, Robinson, Mayor

Sale: Miller, Jennings, Leota, Tuitupou, Cueto, Macleod, Cliff, Harrison, Jones, Lewis Roberts, Gray, Myall, Gaskell, Seymour, Vernon
Replacements: Croall, Cobilas, Buckley, McKenzie, Powell, Willis, Uys, Brady

Sports Mole says: Wasps to ease to victory
