Wasps flyhalf Jackson set for nine month out

Ruaridh Jackson has been with Wasps for two years

Wasps flyhalf Ruaridh Jackson will miss up to the next nine months of the Aviva Premiership Rugby season after suffering an ACL tear on the weekend.

Jackson suffered the injury playing for Wasps at Adams Park against Northampton Saints on Sunday and an MRI scan on the knee injury has revealed an ACL tear.

Following consultation with the specialist today, Ruaridh will require an operation and is likely to be side-lined for between six to nine months.

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.”
