WORCESTER Warriors paceman Perry Humphreys is back in full training as he closes in on making his comeback from injury.

The 24-year-old wing was in fine form over the festive period as he started in Warriors’ Gallagher Premiership games against Saracens and Bath.

But Humphreys who penned a two-year contract in January sustained a high ankle sprain in the win over Bath which ruled him out for more than two months.

The former Leicester Tigers academy ace is now back on the training paddock and boss Alan Solomons is confident he will be available for Worcester’s meeting with Bristol Bears at Ashton Gate on Saturday, March 23.

“Pezza practised on Wednesday and is going to take a full part in training this week,” Solomons said.

“(The match against Exeter Chiefs on Saturday) is probably a little bit early for him but he is pretty close to returning.

“He will definitely be fit and up for consideration for selection for the Bristol game. It’s good to have him back.

“We have also got Shilly (Shillcock) and Jono (Lance) back in training so it’s swings and roundabouts.

“The season is pretty attritional and the body takes a lot of knocks.

“In rugby sometimes you pick up a number of injuries in a particular position or across the board – it’s just the nature of the game.”
