Video: Harlequins Ugo Monye speaks at the IG Rugby Kick Challenge event at Waterloo StationIBTimes UK

The Harlequins star and England wing Ugo Monye was pegged to be off the field until at least January next year but, after speaking to IBTimes UK exclusively at the IG Rugby Kick Challenge, it looks like he could be back on the pitch by Christmas.

Speaking to us on camera, Monye said his physio treatments were going well and he is hoping to be back playing for the Quins in December, after he was placed out of action two months' ago following a groin injury.
