JOE LAUNCH­BURY Wasps lock

v

WILL SPENCER Worces­ter lock Spencer put in a solid shift, with two firsthalf car­ries the high­lights, but Launch­bury won this con­test hands down. The Eng­land lock was at the heart of Wasps driv­ing play and his soft hands and of­fload­ing abil­ity en­sured they kept the ball alive.

A full 80-minute dis­play dis­pelled any fears over tired­ness.
