The following players are currently unavailable for selection due to injury:
Bob Baker: Bob has been ruled out of play indefinitely after being diagnosed with glandular fever. In light of this news London Wasps have signed former Worcester prop Shaun Ruwers on an initial four month contract.
John Hart: John subluxed his shoulder in training ahead of the London Double header. Conservative management of the injury had reached a plateau and therefore the decision to undergo surgery next week has been made with a view to returning to play in four months time.
Ben Jacobs: Ben is ruled out of this week’s game with a tight hamstring but returns to full training next week.
Joe Simpson: Joe has made great progress with his recovery from a hamstring strain and is likely to be back in full training ahead of Wasps clash with Gloucester on Saturday 25th September.
Zak Taulafo: Zak sustained a moderate ankle sprain against Newcastle Falcons and begins a three week rehab programme.
Phil Vickery: Phil continues to recover from an ankle injury sustained against Harlequins. He is making good progress and is likely to be available for selection prior to Wasps v Gloucester.
Christian Wade: Christian sustained a fracture to his schaphoid earlier this month and is therefore unavailable for selection for Wasps and ruled out of the England Sevens Commonwealth games team. He is sidelined for a minimum of 8 weeks and will undergo an extended period of rest and rehabilitation
