WORCESTER Warriors wing Perry Humphreys is on crutches after suffering a blow to his ankle in a nasty-looking collision.

The speedster was forced off in the second half of Warriors’ memorable 21-19 Gallagher Premiership triumph over Bath last Saturday and was due for a scan yesterday.

Head coach Rory Duncan admitted he was unsure whether Humphreys could be out “long-term or not” as he awaited feedback from the specialist.

“If you watch the video footage it doesn’t look too nice," Duncan said.

“I have said before that I don’t like looking at those sorts of things. I am not very good with cuts and blood.

“But the guys are telling me that the footage looks a little bit nasty.

"He is being scanned at the moment and we should have feedback soon on his situation.”

With boss Alan Solomons preferring Bryce Heem and Josh Adams on the flanks Humphreys has had to bide his time for chances in the Premiership side this season.

But Humphreys seized his opportunity at Saracens where he produced a man-of-the-match display and started against Bath.

“Perry is a player who has found a bit of form lately so we would obviously like to keep him on the pitch,” Duncan continued.

“We are not anticipating the worst but it is one of those things where we will have to see what the scans show.

“If anyone gets a lower limb injury we will put them on crutches just to give an opportunity for that injury to heel by taking a bit of pressure off it.

“But until we get feedback I must be honest I really don’t know if it is going to be something long-term or not.”

Adams has missed Warriors’ past two games with a hamstring issue but could be in contention to feature in Saturday’s European Challenge Cup (ECC) showdown with Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium (3pm).

“I don’t know whether he will be cleared to play as he will have to pass a fitness test,” Duncan said.

“But my understanding is that he should be back fully integrated into training on Thursday.”

Duncan added: “Both Tommy Howe and Dean Hammond have done a great job for us in the ECC to date so should we select them I have absolutely full confidence in their ability.”
