London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith is “saying prayers” that Tom Homer's knee injury isn't serious and that he will return very soon.

London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith is “saying prayers” that Tom Homer's knee injury isn't serious and that he will return to action very soon.

The goal-kicker, who limped from the field against Harlequins on Saturday, had tried to continue playing through the pain but then hobbled off.

And now it is a case of hoping for the best for Smith as he prays Homer doesn't suffer similar woes to 2013/14 when he ruptured his groin.

“Tommy Homer has knee ligament damage. It's disappointing to have another injury,” he told getreading.co.uk about the English back's injury.

“It will take 48 hours before we get a really good steer about the level (of the injury).

“We are saying our prayers that it will be a grade one.

“We have a terrific medical team. They will have to work hard to get him back.

“We are expecting a couple of weeks, but we will know a lot more in two days.”
