WASPS will take on Saracens without their most influential forward.

Joe Launchbury will be rested for the game after a taxing Six Nations Championship with England before going to the well once more in Wasps’ win at Worcester last weekend.

Dai Young said: “We’re giving Joe a break this week. We squeezed a game out of him last week but it was always our intention to give him a rest at some stage.

“He probably hasn’t got another game in him anyway and we’ve got a responsibility to look after him. So we’ve given him this week off and it’s well deserved.”
