Daly back but Southwell still sidelined
HUGO Southwell could be back in a month, but Wasps are refusing to put a deadline on his return from a hamstring injury.
The full back hasn’t played at all this season and his calm authority in the back three has been missed, but although he is in the mend after sustaining a complicated hamstring tendon, Wasps are not hurrying him.
Director of rugby Dai Young said: “Hugo isn’t far off it, but the last stage is the critical stage. It could take two weeks or it could take four.
“With hamstrings, it’s not something you can risk too much otherwise you’ll be back to square one.”
Meanwhile, Elliot Daly is fit for Leicester Tigers on Sunday and Sam Jones could return for next weekend’s trip to Gloucester.
Phil Swainston could be back for that match too but Nathan Hughes is facing another two weeks out.
