Daly will be heading on his debut Tour to New Zealand and showed exactly why he’s on the plane with his raw pace providing all sorts of problems for Sarries.
 
The England international sprinted around the outside of Jamie George on the left flank to score a decisive try – Wasps’ fourth of the afternoon that secured the crucial bonus point.

Daly’s try and Thomas Young’s hat-trick ensured the league leaders will play Leicester Tigers in the semi-final.
 
Elsewhere George North helped Northampton Saints beat Harlequins but it was not enough to secure an automatic Champions Cup spot.
 
The winger’s 15th-minute try helped cut the gap an earlier lead established by Quins.

North, who will be heading on his second Lions Tour, was put through by Saints’ fly-half Harry Mallinder’s delicate flick as he powered over the line under the sticks.
 
The 25-year-old was up against fellow Lions’ Joe Marler and Kyle Sinckler who helped Harlequins secure a losing bonus point and finish in sixth position.

Saints end up seventh, and will now face a Champions Cup play-off, provided Gloucester do not win the Challenge Cup next weekend.
