STEVE Diamond has given an update on a number of injured players ahead of Worcester Warriors' trip to London Irish this weekend.

The good news is that scrum-half Willi Heinz is set to make his return to action after almost five months out.

He suffered a calf tear back in October before the heavy 66-10 defeat at Northampton Saints and has been out ever since.

But Diamond confirmed Heinz had been training well for the last two weeks and is ready for his comeback this Saturday.

But there was some concerning news surrounding Ollie Lawrence, who has not been involved since the win over Wasps in December.

he has also been struggling with a calf tear and remains in rehab with club's medical team.

Diamond could not offer a timeframe on his return but said he was "hopeful" he will feature again before the end of the season.

Here is the injury report for Worcester currently:

  • Willie Heinz - back and fit to play
  • Kyle Hatherell - 1-2 weeks more rehab before being back involved
  • Owen Williams - 1-2 weeks more rehab before being back involved
  • Rory Sutherland, Francois Venter, Jamie Shillcock - still out of contention
  • Ollie Lawrence - no timeframe but hopeful he will play before the end of the season
