Wasps captain Joe Launchbury expressed disappointment on missing out on the British and Irish Lions squad for the upcoming tour of New Zealand in June.

Head coach Warren Gatland announced the squad a 41-man squad for the gruelling 10-game tour that comprised of 16 players from England, 12 from Wales, 11 from Ireland and two from Scotland.

Despite, tipped as one of the favourites by various pundits to make it to the Lions, Launchbury failed to make the cut and he was mystified by his exclusion.

Watch the England international speaking about his omission from the Lions squad and also upcoming Aviva Premiership clash against Saracens that might very well decided the top two in the table.

Watch Wasps take on Saracens this Saturday 6th May, 3.15pm on BT Sport. Visit btsport.com for more info
