JACK Singleton is expected to be back from international duty to bolster Worcester Warriors’ resources at hooker after Niall Annett’s injury setback.

Annett left the field with his arm in a sling in the 39th minute of Worcester’s 38-22 defeat to Saracens in the semi-finals of the Premiership Cup last Friday.

With Singleton part of the England set-up for the Six Nations and Joe Taufete’e representing USA in the Americas Rugby Championship Isaac Miller came off the bench to make his third outing of the season for Warriors.

Speaking immediately after the match director of rugby Alan Solomons was unsure on the extent of the damage to Annett’s shoulder.

But Solomons was anticipating being boosted by the availability of Singleton who has yet to win his first senior international cap and England are not playing this weekend.

Second-from-bottom Warriors return to Gallagher Premiership action on Saturday when they visit Harlequins (3pm).

“We have got to see how serious Niall’s injury is but Jack will be around depending on what happens with England,” Solomons said.

“Jack was released last week and this week is a fallow week so all things being equal he should be with us.

“Joe is away as well so it is unfortunate to lose Niall.”

Solomons also set to receive an update on an injury to promising young full-back Nick David.

The academy player marked his second start for Warriors with a try against Sarries only to injure his “upper arm” when he grounded the ball.

“Nick did well and it was great to see our young academy boys play,” Solomons added.

“I thought Will Butler had a very good game as well.

“Doddsy (Tom Dodd) got on too and it was only his third or fourth game since coming back from injury.

“He had to go in at lock which he is not a position he has played in a lot.”
