England Saxons centre Dom Waldouck is set to make his comeback for London Wasps against Newport Gwent Dragons in the Anglo-Welsh Cup after six months on the sidelines with an Achilles injury.
The 24-year-old tore an Achilles during an Aviva Premiership clash with London Irish in April and underwent an operation on the injury, which ended his hopes of breaking into England's Rugby World Cup squad.
After six months out, the centre - who toured Australia with the England senior side in 2010 - is in line to make his 100th appearance for the club from the bench against the Dragons.
Joe Simpson and Zak Taulafo are both named on the bench for Wasps after returning from World Cup action with England and Samoa respectfully.
