Wasps Rugby v Saracens LIVE: Updates from Premiership Cup tieIt's game day. Midweek rugby is taking place at the Coventry Building Society Arena as Gallagher Premiership rivals Wasps and Saracens meet in the Premiership Rugby Cup. Having both played on Saturday in the bread-and-butter of the league, the two clubs have given those in need of game time a chance while also bringing in youngsters to their 23-man squads. Tonight's game is NOT on television and is not available to stream. But you can follow all of the action in our live blog below, which will update automatically during the game...
They knock on, scrum Wasps! 14-748'Bobby BridgeSubMinozzi is on for Watson. 48'Bobby BridgeCrazyLuke Mehson tracks back at full speed to stop Saracens racing onto a grubber ahead. He then turns and makes 25m, handing off the Saracens loosehead Warren. Then Miller knocks on! But we're back for an earlier Saracens knock on. Scrum wASPS, 10m from their own line..

The hooker has been knocking on the door for a score today! Saracens scrum, 10m from their own line.
But it’s interesting to note that had only the original 35-point penalty applied, this would probably have been the weekend when they finally hauled themselves off the foot of the table. They will be led out, presumably, by Alex Goode, who becomes the fourth player in Saracens’ history to reach 300 appearances for the club. The full-back, deprived of the cap-laden Test career that he richly deserved, made his Sarries debut in 2008 and has helped Mark McCall’s side win eight major trophies. DID YOU KNOW? Saracens (nine) and Wasps (seven) have scored more tries directly from a maul than any other side in the Premiership this season Owen Farrell, the England captain and fly-half, returns to the starting XV and the only other change from Monday’s 40-12 defeat of London Irish sees Tim Swinson slot into the second row alongside Maro Itoje. Saracens are protecting a ten-match winning run at Alliance Park. Should they require any extra motivation they have it in spades because in the reverse fixture last February, Wasps hammered them 60-10 at the Ricoh.
Wasps win a scrum penalty. Scholtz is going well at loosehead. 14-743'Bobby BridgeIsolatedSaracens have upped the intensity in the early passages. Curran hits the deck in the carry and Obatoyinbo pounces to win a pen that is kicked to the 22. Wasps give away a free-kick, Saracens go for the lineout. Nizaam Carr steals the line out! Rob Miller clears under pressure.
Zach Kibirige and Brad Shields each crossed twice to help give Blackett a flying start to life as head coach following Dai Young’s departure. You can watch highlights of that match here. Saracens: Alex Goode; Alex Lewington, Elliot Daly, Brad Barritt, Sean Maitland; Owen Farrell, Aled Davies; Richard Barrington, Jamie George, Vincent Koch, Maro Itoje, Tim Swinson, Mike Rhodes, Jackson Wray, Billy Vunipola.
