Injury News: Key England duo nearing returns

Versatile back Elliot Daly and powerful number eight Nathan Hughes are finally on the cusp of a return to action with Wasps.

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young is awaiting news from England regarding number eight Hughes’ fitness after the back-rower joined Eddie Jones squad on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Daly could be fit to face Exeter Chiefs next weekend when the Six Nations takes a break from the action.

“It would have been nice if Nathan had trained with us because he hasn’t really trained with us yet,” said Young to the Coventry Telegraph.

“But we have confidence in England looking after him and make a call on whether he’s eligible for selection for them and then if he’s not and he comes through two training sessions here, he’ll be eligible for us.

“We’ll wait and see on that but it’s great to have these types of players back in the mix anyway.”
