Slow recovery: Hugo Southwell

London Wasps director of rugby Dai Young has admitted that full-back Hugo Southwell is no closer to returning to full fitness.

The former Scotland international is yet to play for the club this season.

Southwell was allegedly close to returning last October according to Young, but the final stages of his recovery from a serious hamstring injury have not progressed as expected.

And there appears to be no obvious return date for the 33-year-old, whose previous clubs include Bristol, Worcester, Edinburgh and Stade Franšais.

"He's not progressing at all," Young told the Bucks Free Press.

"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."
