England captain Chris Robshaw was among the scorers as Harlequins booked their Premiership semi-final berth – and heaped more misery on relegation-threatened Wasps.

Robshaw – who lead England to second in the Six Nations earlier this year – was one of four Quins scorers, including fellow Englishman Jordan Turner-Hall, as the Premiership leaders ran out 33-17 winners.

It ended a bad week in the worst possible fashion for Wasps, who are not only facing up to the threat of administration but also saw relegation rivals Newcastle win at Gloucester, 29-20, to move within four points of them at the bottom.

Robshaw wasn’t the only England player celebrating with fly-half Toby Flood toasting a vintage day at the office –contributing 25 points to a 35-21 win over Northampton Saints.

England wing Chris Ashton, tryless in the Six Nations, was among the scorers while international scrum-half Lee Dickson notched the Saints’ other try.

That win saw Leicester leapfrog Saracens into second in the table despite the Vicarage Road outfit beating London Irish 28-19.

Another of England ’s fly-half’s Charlie Hodgson was among the points, kicking 23 points while Delon Armitage crossed twice for the Exiles.

Meanwhile Exeter beat Worcester 31-26 to leapfrog Northampton into the final semi-final berth with two games of the season remaining.
