Haskell thrilled by milestone

Date published: May 8 2015

Wasps captain James Haskell is delighted to be making his 150th appearance for the club this weekend against Leicester.

Saturday's key fixture in the battle for the top four will be extra special for the England back rower, who spent time with Stade Français, the Highlanders and Ricoh Black Rams in between his two stints with Wasps.

Haskell has been in great form this season while the club have overgone major changes off the field with their move to Coventry.

The new derby between Wasps and Leicester is a sell-out and Haskell underlined how happy he was to be part of a Wasps side that are making progress.

"Getting 150 appearances for any team is fantastic," Haskell told the Wasps' website.

"For the length of time I've been in the game it almost feels like I should have more, but I obviously had that period in the middle where I went off around the world and played elsewhere.

"It's great to be back here in a side that is really going places, playing with some great players, a great coaching staff about to play in front of 32,000 people at the Ricoh Arena."
