WORCESTER Warriors' captain Ted Hill, winger Chris Ashton and centre Ollie Morris all remain a doubt for a return to action this weekend after suffering from injuries and HIAs respectively.

Hill has been pulled out late on in the past two weeks with a back injury that is affecting his hamstrings but head coach Jonathan Thomas insists he is progressing well and is hopeful we will be available this weekend for the trip to London Irish.

Ashton and Morris both started the home defeat to Bristol bears last Saturday but both failed HIAs during the first half and did not feature in the second period.

The protocol is that both go through a six-day assessment period and Thomas said a decision will be made once they come through that process (Friday).

As for other injuries, Marco Mama has been struggling with a shoulder problem and remains doubtful for the Irish game on Sunday.

Graham Kitchener is fit again for action but with the impressive performances of Justin Clegg and Andrew Kitchener, the coaches are using this time to give them much needed exposure at the highest level.
