Melani Nanai injury update

Warriors full-back Melani Nanai is to undergo surgery to repair a torn hamstring injury which is expected to sideline him for the rest of the season.

“Melani suffered an unfortunate hamstring injury in training which will require surgical repair. The early prognosis is that he is likely to miss the rest of the season which is extremely disappointing and frustrating for him and everyone here at Sixways,” said Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons.

Nanai, 27, arrived at Sixways from Super Rugby side Blues in the summer of 2019 and has made 17 appearances and scored three tries for Warriors.

His first season with the club was disrupted by a shoulder injury which also required surgery but Nanai returned to action when the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership campaign resumed in August after the first lockdown caused by COVID-19.
