Wasps v RC Toulon - European Rugby Champions Cup

Wasps are shaping up to be one of the dominant forces in European club rugby next season, and it’s no wonder when they have potential starting XV like this…

15.Charles Piutau

Although the former All Black could be set to complete his move to Ulster this summer, there are rumours gathering momentum that Wasps are set to buy the full back out of his contract.

14.Christian Wade

Injuries have hampered his progress over the last couple of years, but there is no doubting that Wade is one of the most exciting talents on the front foot in the Premiership right now.

13.Elliot Daly

Daly is arguably the form English centre right now, and could become even more devastating thanks to the distribution skills of new fly half Danny Cipriani at fly half.

12.Siale Piutau

Although less well known than his brother, Siale has quickly emerged as a fantastic under the radar signing for Wasps, and could be a vital first team player next season.

11.Frank Halai

Known as Frank The Tank – Halai has become a mainstay in the Wasps backline and will no doubt continue his incredible try scoring form into next season.


10.Danny Cipriani

The Prodigal Son returns – and who better to orchestrate Wasps already impressive backline than the mercurial fly half who surely can’t be far off yet more England recognition.

9.Joe Simpson

It remains one of the biggest head scratchers in rugby that Simpson hasn’t received more England recognition (injuries aside), however Eddie Jones’ loss is Wasps gain.

8.Nathan Hughes

Arguably the best number 8 in England, if not Europe right now – Wasps look an entirely different side when the rampaging back rower is in the starting XV.

7.David Pocock

It remains just a rumour right now, but there are plenty of whispers that the Aussie flanker could be on his way to the Ricoh next year to give the Premiership a shot.

6.James Haskell

The current England openside, and a key leader, Haskell embodies everything Wasps are about at the moment and will continue being a vital cog in their well oiled machine.


5.Bradley Davies

The Wales lock has been an astute acquisition by the Coventry based club and looks to continue being a key figure in their pack into next season.

4.Joe Launchbury

He isn’t quite at his best right now, but when in form, Launchbury is arguably one of the best English locks around and gives Wasps plenty of forward momentum.

3.Marty Moore

Irish tighthead prop Marty Moore is a huge coup for Dai Young who has been looking to make the Wasps set piece even more dominant next season.

2.Ashley Johnson

The former backrower turned hooker remains a devastating presence around the field, and if he can nail the set piece, it will be like having an extra flanker around the pitch.

1.Matt Mullan

Mullan is arguably the best scrummaging loosehead in England, and is unlucky to be behind Joe Marler and Mako Vunipola in the international pecking order.
