Umaga concerned by season cancellation possibility

Wasps fly-half Jacob Umaga has admitted it would be "frustrating" to see the Gallagher Premiership season cancelled completely.

The Rugby Football Union ended the season for all levels below the top-flight on Friday and now there are concerns the Premiership could be the next one to go amid the coronavirus crisis.

Umaga, the nephew of the New Zealand icon, Tana Umaga, is fully aware of the serious nature of the current situation but has admitted it would be disappointing to see the season ended after Wasps upturn in fortunes of late.

"Rugby is just our job," the 21-year-old stand-off told BBC Sport. "We can only follow what the government and the RFU say."

Umaga added on if the season was cancelled: "It would be frustrating as we were just on a good turn of form, but it's a lot bigger than us."

Wasps, who last played on March 7 before the suspension, currently find themselves in fifth place in the Premiership table with two points between them and the play-off places.
