HUGO Southwell’s career appears to be in the balance with the Wasps full back showing no signs of recovering from a complicated hamstring injury.

The former Scotland international hasn’t played at all this season and there is no prospect of him returning to action any time soon.

Director of rugby Dai Young said: “He’s not progressing at all. It’s getting to the stage where we’re starting to fear the worst.

“We’re still pushing ahead with it, but it’s not moving anywhere near as quick as Hugo would like or we’d like.”
