ISAAC Miller believes he has finally found his feet at Worcester Warriors after an eye-opening first season in the Gallagher Premiership.

The 25-year-old hooker kicked off the 2019-20 campaign in fine style last Saturday as he scored his maiden try for the club in the Premiership Cup win over Leicester Tigers.

It was also Miller’s first start for Warriors since making the move from Championship outfit London Scottish in the summer of 2018.

Following an injury-hit start to his Worcester career Miller made just six outings last season with his debut coming in the European Challenge Cup at Pau in December.

Three of his appearances came in the Premiership but he had a day to forget after being summoned from the bench early in Warriors’ defeat at relegation rivals Newcastle Falcons.

“That wasn’t the best day for me,” said Miller on his sorry 67-minute showing at Kingston Park in March.

“But it’s about how you bounce back from that.

“Everyone has tough times and tough days at the office.

“I was pretty pleased with how the lineout went on Saturday so it’s just about keeping my confidence up and doing as best I can.

“Last year was definitely a big learning curve for me.

“Having come from the Championship it was a completely different level.

“You feel a lot of pressure when you first go into that environment and I fell into it quite late in the season.”

Miller’s hopes of making an immediate impression at the club following his arrival were dented when he fractured his collarbone in pre-season.

“I had gone the whole pre-season and then injured my collarbone in our first game against Treviso,” Miller said.

“It was an annoying time.

“I rehabbed for three months but when you get back fit you don’t just go into the side. You have to work your way in which was difficult as the boys had put in such a big shift over those first few months.

“I was then having to work my way in through training and look for an opportunity in the European Challenge Cup or A-League to prove myself.

“While the A-League is great, it’s not like playing in the Premiership.

“You may get a few games in the A-League and then get thrown into the Premiership which is the next level up.

“I definitely feel more confident now.

“Having been here for a year I have found my feet and just want to crack on.”

With new signing Matt Moulds sidelined for up to five weeks due to a knee injury and USA international Joe Taufete’s in Japan for the Rugby World Cup Miller is looking to seize his chance in the number two jersey.

“You might not think it from an outside perspective but you don’t wish an injury on anyone,” Miller added, “I just want to keep playing, building my experience and take every opportunity that comes my way.”
