Lawrence Dallaglio insists he does not see Wasps' Heineken Cup campaign as a chance to make up for England's poor showing in this season's RBS Six Nations' Championship.

Lawrence Dallaglio insists he does not see Wasps' Heineken Cup campaign as a chance to make up for England's poor showing in this season's RBS Six Nations' Championship.

Looking forward to today's quarter-final against Gloucester at the Causeway Stadium, the England captain said: "I don't look at my playing career as England, England, England. When I walk through the door at Wasps it's very much all about my club. I want to succeed for the supporters of Wasps and it's Wasps I'm most excited about at club level. There'll be one English team in the semi-final and I want to make sure it's us."

Wasps will field the side that dismantled Northampton 31-5 last Sunday in the Zurich Premiership while Gloucester, who beat Saracens 16-8 the previous day, have restored Jon Goodridge at full-back.

Harlequins have recalled fly-half Paul Burke, Samoan wing George Harder and flanker Roy Winters following last weekend's 15-15 draw with London Irish for today's Parker Pen Challenge Cup semi-final first leg with Connacht at The Stoop.

Following yesterday's 57-18 success at Coventry, in which wing Daren O'Leary ran in a hat-trick of tries, Worcester need one more win to complete a 100 per cent record in National League One.
