CHRISTIAN Wade will play his first game for Wasps since November 30 in a friendly against Esher tomorrow.

The winger damaged his ankle against London Irish and after playing a full part in pre-season training missed both the two pre-season friendlies with a hamstring strain.

However, he has been named in a side that wouldn't be far away from Dai Young's starting XV against Saracens on September 6.

Certainly the pack looks full strength. Joe Launchbury starts in the second row with James Gaskell, while Ashley Johnson, James Haskell and Nathan Hughes form a blockbuster back row and Matt Mullan, Carlo Festuccia and Lorenzo Cittadini start in the front row.

The match kicks off at 7.30pm, and entrance to Molesey Road is free.
