Wasps have admitted they are "starting to fear the worst" over fullback Hugo Southwell's injury.
The veteran fullback is suffering from a hamstring injury and coach Dai Young has conceded there is no firm date in place for his return to the pitch.
"He's not progressing at all. It's getting to the stage where we're starting to fear the worst," Young told the Bucks Free Press. "We're still pushing ahead with it, but it's not moving anywhere near as quick as Hugo would like or we'd like."
