Despite Wasps poor start to the season, are they on the verge of something great?

Wasps have started the season with only one league win against fellow heavyweight strugglers Bath, however if they get through this sticky spell they have a squad that can grow and improve together. Jack Willis being the shining light, there is hope.

Willis is already fulfilling his potential and had it not been for a horrible knee injury early in 2018, he would surely have been at the World Cup with England. Behind Willis though, there is further potential all across the pitch. Two former England under 20 internationals that have come through Wasps Academy are close behind in Oghre and Umaga leading the way, with Umaga already forcing his way into the first team ahead of the experienced Sapoaga.

On the wing, Wasps have great excitement in Sirker (although currently injured), Kibirige and Odogwu supporting the established Watson and Bassett. Add in the exciting young full backs in Minozzi and James, the back three for wasps is looking like an area of strength in the years to come.

If Wasps can find a centre or fly half who can control the attack the Gopperth can who can lead the backs for the coming years, then final jigsaw piece will be in place.

With Launchbury signing a new deal setting the tone for the others to follow, with the right additions the future is looking very bright for wasps!
