This looks nasty.

Jimmy Gopperth has taken to Instagram to post a nasty image of a facial injury he picked up the weekend while playing for Wasps. His side took on Leicester on Sunday, coming away with a hard fought win, in a fiery affair.

His teammate James Haskell went off injured less than a minute after making his long-awaited return. The England back-row knocked himself clean out while making a tackle, but he’s not the only one who picked up a bang, with Gopperth coming away with a nasty gash above his eye.


Gopperth received some twelve stitches to patch up a nasty cut. It’s not known how he got it, but you can imagine it was probably a stray boot somewhere during the match.

His modelling career may be over, but at least Wasps are top of the table!

Pretty physical game yesterday, but a great win to start the year! Awesome atmosphere @waspsrugby fans outstanding as usual! Think I may have lost a modelling job post footy 😂
