POTENT wing Tom Howe hopes to take a leaf out of Josh Adams’ book by letting his tries do the talking in his bid to gain recognition.

Howe is in fine form for Warriors having scored six times in his past six matches in the European Challenge Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup.

Worcester will be without Adams who is set to start for Wales against England in the Six Nations this weekend and the injured Perry Humphreys for their trip to Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow (2pm).

But Howe, who has featured just once in the league for Warriors since joining from Wasps last summer, insisted he was not getting ahead of himself.

“It is always nice to cross the try-line on a personal note, but there are a few things I need to work on,” said the 22-year-old.

“You can’t just cross the try-line and call it a job done.”

Last season, Adams starred in the Anglo-Welsh Cup – finishing as the tournament’s top-scorer with six touchdowns – before taking his chance in the Premiership.

The 22-year-old has kicked on this term, scoring 13 tries in 17 games, earning him a first call-up to Wales’ senior squad.

“I hope I am (putting pressure on the coaches),” said Howe who went over in Warriors’ 33-27 defeat Dragons last Friday.

“Josh has put his hand up and gets called up for Wales so he has showed that it can be done.

“If you put in good performances it can put you in good places.

“Josh crosses the try-line almost every weekend and if that doesn’t get the coaches looking at you then what will?

“But I will just keep my head down. There are still lots of options in the back-line so I am not getting ahead of myself.

“I am going to keep focused, try to get over that whitewash if I can and put in the performances that I want to.”

Howe said he was disappointed to be knocked out of the Anglo-Welsh Cup but was pleased to see many of Warriors’ academy players get a chance to impress at Dragons.

“I have played at Dragons once before when I was at Wasps and it was a similar sort of game,” Howe said.

“They are a tough outfit with gritty forwards and electric backs.

“There were a few disappointed lads in the changing room as it was one of those which got away.

“But I know what it is like for the younger guys out there and it was a great opportunity for them.

“I thought all of them put their hands up as they put in great performances.

“A few of them have just played in the A League this year and been on loan to local clubs like Stourbridge.

“For them to put on a first-team jersey is huge.

“As a teenager you want to be around first-team players and play at big stadium against some good opposition so it was good for their development.”
