Injury News: Wasps star close to return from ACL injury after just 117 days!

Wasps could have been without playmaker Jimmy Gopperth for up to nine months after anterior cruciate ligament surgery.

The 35-year-old, who can play fly-half or inside centre, who was injured in a pre-season friendly against Connacht was told he’d be out for 6-9 months in August.

But Gopperth has surprised fans with his latest Instagram post.
