Last year's breakout star, Callum Sirker, is back in action for another round, as are captain Will Wilson, vice-captain Will Porter, and Sunni Jardine. 

Some new faces will join the fray, including Zach Kibirgie, Paolo Odogwu, and Ben Vellacott, who have come over from Newcastle, Sale, and Gloucester respectively. 

Another player to watch is young Jacob Umaga. The nephew of All Black legend Tana Umaga, the Wasps academy product spent the last season on loan playing for Auckland in New Zealand's Mitre 10 Cup. 

Umaga will bring pace, power, and precision to the Wasps unit, and will likely be linking up with speedster Sirker in the outer channels.
