TWO of Wasps' most exciting talents played for England at Twickenham yesterday.

Joe Simpson and Elliot Daly played in the youthful England XV that was beaten 39-29 by the Barbarians.

Daly actually played for the Barbarians against England in this fixture last season.

He said: "It’s the first [time in an England shirt] here at Twickenham for me, so it was a really special day – just disappointed that we didn’t get the win.

“It was a tough fixture and I think both teams can hold their heads up high.”

Meanwhile, Joe Launchury, James Haskell and Matt Mullan are with the full England squad in New Zealand ahead of the first test against the All Blacks on June 7.
