Wasps’ club captain during the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons is now one of England’s most-capped second rows having passed the half-century mark during the 2018 Six Nations.

A powerful close-range operator, Launchbury is renowned for getting through huge amounts of work in both attack and defence in addition to his set-piece duties.

The Devon-born lock, who played his early rugby at Exmouth RFC, joined Wasps’ senior academy in 2009.

Alongside the likes of Sam Jones, Elliot Daly and Christian Wade, Launchbury was thrown into Premiership rugby as a teenager and quickly became recognised as one of his country’s leading performers.

This led to England under 20 honours in 2011, rapidly followed by a senior call-up in 2012/13 and the award of the Aviva Premiership’s young player award.
Launchbury has been a vital member of the England squad since that point, appearing in the 2015 World Cup plus summer tours to New Zealand, Argentina and Australia and being part of a Grand Slam win.

He passed the 100-appearance mark for Wasps during the 2016/17 season and was named alongside three teammates in the dream team at the end of the campaign.
