DIRECTOR of rugby Alan Solomons expects wing Josh Adams to be in “fine fettle” when he returns to Worcester Warriors next week.

Adams is due to report for training at Sixways on Thursday after being given five-and-a-half weeks off to recover from his exploits on the international stage.

The 23-year-old, who scored 17 tries in 25 appearances for Warriors last season, looked set to miss out on Wales’ summer tour after being dropped over a ruling for England-based players.

But an injury to Steff Evans in the win over South Africa led head coach Warren Gatland to recall Adams for their two Tests against Argentina.

The Swansea-born back started in Wales’ victory in San Juan before scoring a stunning try in their triumph in Sante Fe.

Solomons was delighted to see Adams cross the whitewash for the first time for his country and was happy to give him a long break before starting pre-season with Worcester.

“His last try was quite exceptional,” Solomons said.

“He is a terrific player and I am glad he had the opportunities in the two Test matches in Argentina.

“I have given him a bit longer than five weeks because he wanted to go away with his family.

“He will be back on July 26 so he will be in fine fettle when he comes back and I look forward to welcoming him.

“He has become a really good international player.”

Hooker Joe Taufete’e is already back in training with Warriors after starring in USA’s Tests against Russia, Scotland and Canada last month.

But Solomons has allowed front rower Jack Singleton, who was a key figure for Worcester last term, extra time off after training with England this summer.

The uncapped 22-year-old notched a try in England’s defeat to the Barbarians at Twickenham in May before being called up as injury cover during their tour to South Africa.

“I was delighted for Jack and just sorry that he didn’t get on (against the Springboks),” Solomons said.

“I watched the game against the Barbarians on television and he played fabulously.

“He will join up with us on July 30 as he needs the five weeks off.

“Then we will give both Jack and Josh a proper pre-season before we put them into matches.”

Most of Warriors’ squad started training on Thursday, June 14, before going on a week-long training block in Spain this month.

They will travel to Italy to face Benetton in a friendly on Friday, August 10, before tackling Hartpury at Sixways on Saturday, August 18.

“We will see how hard Jack and Josh go in pre-season because they will be getting very individualised training to some extent,” Solomons added.

“If they have got a good base fitness sometimes they will progress a bit quicker but with Joe’s family here that is going to make a big difference.”
