Adams 'buzzing' for tail end of campaign

WING wizard Josh Adams insists he is flowing with more confidence then ever after scoring a brace of tries on his return from a head injury.

The young Welsh prodigy suffered a concussion against Harlequins on New Year’s Day after fracturing his nose, but the five-week spell on the sidelines didn’t deter the 21-year-old from crossing the whitewash twice on his return two weeks ago against Cardiff Blues.

Tied as the club’s top try scorer this season with Dean Hammond on eight, Adams is ‘buzzing’ to play his part in Warriors’ last eight Premiership games of the season.

“After I had caught a high ball against Harlequins on New Year’s Day, I tried to scramble away on all fours but their full-back came into stop me and his knee clashed against my nose,” said the former Scarlets player.

“I had a complete fracture of the nose which unfortunately resulted in me having five weeks off with a concussion.

“I loved coming back and scoring two tries against Cardiff though. It was a positive step towards building momentum ahead of the Saracens match.

“It’s been an unexpected season for me so far. Had someone told me before the campaign started I was to have the impact I’ve had, I’d have bitten their hand off.

“A few injuries at the start of the season gave me the opportunity to play and thankfully I’ve managed to keep my place in the 23-man squad.

“Being exposed to Premiership rugby so early was definitely a good thing as I’ve learnt so much from my experiences. I’ve developed a lot of confidence in myself since my first game away to Bath in September.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying the campaign and with Gary Gold coming in I think we can push on.

“There’s been a new lease of life around camp and we’re all buying into his plan. We’re all buzzing to face the final challenges ahead.”
