Thomas Waldrom to miss Premiership final through injury

  • Thomas Waldrom will miss Exeter’s Aviva Premiership final clash with Saracens
  • The number 8 has been ruled out for 12 weeks with a knee ligament injury
  • The 33-year-old England back-rower suffered damage to his medial ligament in the closing stages of Saturday’s 34-23 league semifinal victory
Exeter’s Thomas Waldrom will miss the Premiership Final against Saracens after picking up an injury, that will keep him out for three months.

The New Zealand-born loose forward damaged his knee ligaments late in the second-half of last week’s 34-23 semi-final victory over Wasps.



South African-born Exeter back-row Don Armand confirmed that they are all disappointed at the news of Waldrom’s injury.

“It’s really horrible for someone like ‘Tank’ especially, who puts so much time and emotion into the team and you can see that by the way he plays,” Armand told the Belfast Telegraph.

“We’re definitely going to miss him. He’s been really upset this week and that just shows what the team means to him. There are definitely boys playing for him, as extra emotion and motivation.”
