WORCESTER Warriors have been hit by a long list of injuries ahead of Saturday’s clash with Harlequins at The Stoop (3pm).

Centre Ryan Mills (shoulder), full-back Chris Pennell (leg), fly-half Duncan Weir (hand), back-rowers Sam Lewis (concussion) and Marco Mama (leg) and prop Ethan Waller (hand) are all doubts for the Gallagher Premiership clash.

The injuries all occurred in Sunday’s bruising 24-20 defeat against Exeter Chiefs at Sixways where the hosts made more than 200 tackles.

Director of rugby Alan Solomons insisted he was “not ruling anyone out completely” at this stage but there is a strong chance he could be without them.

“There are quite a few guys that have picked up knocks, bumps and bruises,” Solomons said.

“We will have to wait to see how we go before we select the team.

“I am not ruling anyone out completely at this particular moment but we will make a decision and we will put out the injured list so you will get to see everything there.”

Lewis and Mama were forced off against Exeter while Pennell had to see a specialist after the encounter and Weir and Waller underwent scans.

“Chris has got quite a deep cut there which the specialist had to stitch up,” Solomons said.

“Millsy took a knock to the shoulder, Sammy had to go off for a HIA (head injury assessment) and Marco also took a bang to his leg.

“Millsy got through the game but we have got to take into account all the factors and in particular that there is a six-day turnaround.

“In that Exeter game we made 226 tackles.

“We didn’t break the previous (tally) in the Premiership Cup game against them where we made 360 but 226 is quite a lot of tackles.”

On Pennell’s injury, Solomons said: “That cut was quite deep so you have to be careful with a thing like that.

“I think it was a laceration from a boot. I have seen that happen a number of times when I was at Ulster and the Stormers.”

Asked whether Pennell would be out for a few weeks, Solomons said: “It’s possible.

“We have got to assess everything and make a decision on the side in due course.”

Solomons said Weir who produced a man-of-the-match performance in the loss to Chiefs returned to training today but was feeling the effects of his defensive effort.

“Duncan took a blow on his hand and Ethan did as well,” Solomons said.

“But both of the X-rays were clear.

“Duncan is pretty battered and bruised. He had quite a defensive performance if you go through the film.

“He tackled above and beyond his weight.”

Asked how training was going, Solomons added: “The lads have been pretty good actually.

“Obviously they were off completely on Monday but they were pretty decent on Tuesday.

“Whoever took part in that practice was good.”
