Nathan Charles back to Bath

I had thought it was a longer term deal (i.e. 3 months) but clearly not! Hopefully means Tom and Tommy are closer to full fitness!

hopefully Cruse fit? was supposed to be a 6 week lay off from Mid Oct.

Perhaps he's already registered for europe with bath or that wasn't part of the loan terms so therefore he may as well head back now if not eligible for next 2 fixtures.

ash is going to need a rest in the new year!

I thought it was a bit suspect that he was hardly used as cover, even to give Ash a rest. Letting him go back to Bath now implies that Tom Cruse is ready to come back or that on reflection TJ Harris/Gaby Oghre are better cover. Maybe Charles' fitness wasn't up to Wasps matchday requirements, or maybe he struggled with absorbing all the calls.

I thought it was longer than that too.

But we haven't announced any changes to the European squad, so he wouldn't be available for the next two weeks anyway.

Imagine Tom will be back next week?

I think that is possibly more to this. His tweet yesterday alluded that he was very tired and contemplating going to bed at 5pm.

What about TT? Wasn't he due back in Jan? Maybe he's a bit ahead of schedule too. That would be great news.

Does that mean Cruse will be back soon? I see that Rieder is now back in training, running.

Reider is a while off. On Saturday he suggested a couple of months.

Best wishes Nathan, whatever the circumstances. Hoping you are well.
See you on the 29th hopefully.

From memory, Rieder was a shoulder injury, so running wouldn't necessarily be a problem?

This kind of deal concerns me at the best of times

Will he now go to Bath and tell them all our lineout calls, backs moves, forward structures etc?

Was a bit disappointed when we signed him short term as TJ Harris had impressed me. Couldn't have done much for TJ's confidence.

It's one thing knowing calls.. but its another trying to stop them being executed.

I'm guessing that means TJ will be on the bench for the Rochelle game as there's been no mention of Cruse and TT is out until Jan at best

We have 3 hookers in our CC squad - Ash, Cruse and Taylor. So I do not know who is our reserve hooker this week (or next).

To Quote the offy "Cruse is expected to return to action shortly to contest the hooker shirt with Ashley Johnson, while academy prospects Gaby Oghre and TJ Harris continue to provide support and have impressed on each occasion they’ve taken the field for Wasps."
I imagine that they expect TC to be fit in time for the next AP games

Neither of those two are registered so maybe it will be Cruse on the bench (or another prop as it has to be a front row player).
