Ruaridh Jackson will be out for up to nine months after it was confirmed today that the Wasps fly-half ruptured his anterior cruciate knee ligament.
The Scotland international sustained the injury during Wasps’ stunning win over Northampton last Sunday and he requires surgery.
Dai Young said, “We are all incredibly disappointed for Ruaridh, who has made such an impact since joining Wasps this season. He has impressed me during training, both with his skill level and his attitude, and it’s a real blow to lose him after he played so well in pre-season and when he came on against Northampton Saints last Sunday.
“Our medical team will be monitoring Ruaridh carefully and supporting him through this frustrating period. Professional sport is cruel at times and this is certainly one of those times. Alex Lozowski will now have an opportunity to impress over the next few weeks, alongside Andy Goode, while we also have the option of playing Rob Miller at fly half.”
