Haughton and Ward-Smith preview the St George’s Day Game

This Saturday sees the second annual St George’s Day game taking place at Twickenham as London Wasps take on Bath Rugby.  Having lost in the fixture last year, we caught up with Richard Haughton and Dan Ward-Smith to hear their thoughts on the match and how Wasps need to improve for next season.

DWS:  “You like to be able to control your own destiny.”

With Bath in sixth and Wasps in eighth with five points between them, there is a lot to play for in terms of seeking out the Heineken Cup spots for next season. 

“There’s going to be 30 desperate players out there. I’m sure it will be a good occasion for the spectators, but there will be 30 desperate players scrapping on the pitch. Everyone wants to play Heineken Cup next year, but there’s only a few teams that can.”
