London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “The injury is a huge blow for Tom and everyone at Wasps. We all saw how incredibly hard Tom worked to get back to full fitness from last season’s injury so this is desperately disappointing. As Director of Rugby, Tom was someone I had earmarked to have a major impact this season both on and off the pitch and he will be sorely missed. We all wish him the best in his recovery.”
