JAMES Haskell has urged his younger team-mates to step up to the plate and win the Amlin Challenge Cup.

Haskell, who was immense in the quarter-final win over Gloucester, is a survivor from Wasps’ glory years and says it’s time for the club to start recreating that environment.

He said: “There are a lot of boys in the squad that haven’t won anything. If you don’t win anything and you’re not near winning anything, rugby becomes a bit of a job.

“You only enjoy being a rugby player when you win stuff, you only ever bond with your team fully when you’ve won something and you’ve achieved that camaraderie.

“People go through their whole careers without winning anything and I was very lucky I was with Wasps when we won everything. I got to experience that and I want to get that back.”
