Having made 77 England caps and toured with the Lions in 2017, Haskell has hopes of playing at next years Rugby World Cup and is staying as positive as he can.

I want to continue my international career for as long as possible. The only way I can do that is by putting my best foot forward in club rugby and helping Saints fight their way back into contention for silverware.

I’m really excited and humbled to be joining a giant of English rugby. This is a club with a proud history and a set of passionate and loyal supporters who always make their presence felt.

Haskell has been at Wasps since 2002 and said that he had no hard feelings after being told he was no longer required at the Ricoh Arena.

 

Haskell was recalled for the Six Nations game against France back in March after having not been involved in the international set-up for over a year.
