New faces line up against Henson
WASPS' new Italian hooker Carlo Festuccia made his club debut in an A team game against Gavin Henson and Bath last night.
New props Taione Vea and Billy Moss joined him in the front row, while other summer arrivals Joe Carlisle, Josh Bassett, Rory Pitman and Jack Moates also started for Wasps.
But their influence wasn't enough to stave off a 31-16 defeat at The Rec.
Carlise did actually give Wasps the lead off the tee, but Tom Biggs and Will Spencer crossed for Bath to make it 18-3 before centre Alex Harrison went over to reduce the lead to 18-8.
A penalty apiece moved it onto 21-11 at the break, and Tom Howe's second-half try wasn't enough to close the gap as Bath scored twice more to wrap up a 36-16 victory.
