Wasps and England wing Tom Varndell

TOM VARNDELL sustained an ankle ligament injury against Gloucester Rugby at Adams Park on Sunday.  He will undergo surgery and then begin a rehab programme. He expected to be out of action for up to 12 weeks.

London Wasps Director of Rugby Tony Hanks said: “We are really disappointed for Tom, especially as this season he has been injury-free and has been involved in every single game.  His form has been very strong and we will certainly miss him but are confident he will make a full recovery.”
