Dai Young: 'It will be difficult to replace Ruaridh Jackson'

Dai Young says that it will not be easy to find a "quality" fly-half replacement for long-term injury casualty Ruaridh Jackson.

London Wasps head coach Dai Young has admitted that he faces a tough task replacing injured fly-half Ruaridh Jackson.

It was announced yesterday that the Scotland international is likely to miss the remainder of the Aviva Premiership season, having suffered an ACL tear in the Wasps' 20-16 victory over Northampton Saints.

Jackson will undergo surgery on his knee in the coming days, but Young acknowledges that he now faces a difficult task of replacing the summer recruit.

"It is not easy to pick up any quality player at this time of year," he told BBC Sport. "Most quality players are already signed up and working elsewhere."

The Saints, who are currently sixth in the early league standings, face Harlequins this weekend.
