JAMES Haskell is back in the England team after reclaiming his place in Stuart Lancaster’s starting XV to face New Zealand in the first Test of the summer on Saturday.

The back row’s recall comes after a superb finish to the season in Wasps colours.

Haskell will win his 51st cap against the All Blacks while Joe Launchbury starts at lock and Matt Mullan has been named among the replacements.

They aren’t the only Wasps players on duty this summer though.

Andrea Masi will play for Italy alongside new Wasps recruit Lorenzo Cittadini against Fiji, Samoa and Japan, Will Helu will represent Tonga and Ruaridh Jackson will tour with Scotland as they take on Canada, Argentina and South Africa before joining the black and golds for pre-season.
