Wasps won’t dwell on Champions Cup defeat

James Haskell says Wasps cannot dwell on their Champions Cup semi-final defeat to Saracens as they need to concentrate on their Premiership challenge.

Wasps took an early lead against Sarries through Dan Robson's first-minute try at the Madejski Stadium but they were unable to hold off the Premiership leaders as they went down 24-17.

Haskell knows Wasps, who are second behind Saracens in the Premiership table, must now regroup as they look to capture the domestic crown, but he also praised their performance in Reading.

He said: "When you play a game like that, you get the initial disappointment, but we gave it everything we had.

"Credit to Saracens, they are a team that plays that strangling rugby a lot of the time, and it is very difficult to make inroads. When we did, we looked very dangerous.

"They see an opportunity. If you are on the front foot going at them, then that kinds of stops them, but if you don't, it kind of plays a little bit into their hands and it is very difficult to deal with."
