Josh Bassett Captains Wasps Singha 7s Squad At Sandy Park
A graduate of Ampthill’s Youth system, Josh Bassett has been selected to Captain a strong Wasps squad this weekend (July 23) in the group stage of the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s tournament hosted by Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park. Josh was signed from Ampthill by Bedford Blues from where he was signed by Wasps in 2013 after representing England at U20 level.
Wasps Sevens Coach Matt Davies “We have named an exciting squad and it’s now up to us to come together very quickly and get on the same page.
We have some good experience of sevens in this group, with the likes of Frank Halai, Nick De Luca and Tom Howe all having represented their countries in the shortened version of the game, and we hope those guys will bring a lot to the squad, but we also have some very talented first team players and some exciting young members of the Senior Academy, who will all need to come together on Saturday if we are going to be successful.
Sandy Park is always a great venue for rugby and we’re looking forward to a great event on Saturday and our focus has to be on making sure we qualify for the Finals of the competition back at the Ricoh Arena.”
