Moseley could be without Andy Binns for this weekend's game against Cornish All Blacks after the veteran full back picked up a knee injury last weekend.

The 31-year-old has not been able to train since sustaining the knock in last Saturday's defeat to Exeter and is still complaining of pain which makes him a real doubt for the trip to Launceston.

That could afford Matt Williams the chance to return to the No 15 shirt, having played the first two games of the season there but being displaced by the arrival of Ali James on loan from Gloucester.

Binns will be assessed by the Moseley medical staff as will lock Richard Stott who was knocked out during the match with Northampton Saints.

On the plus side, however, is the fact Oliver Atkinson is likely to recover from the lower back injury that led to his early withdrawal against the Chiefs.

"I am sure he will be all right," said head coach Ian Smith. "It's only a soft tissue injury and he's improving daily."

Adam Caves will also be fit.

Moseley will speak to back row Mark Evans about his sending off last Saturday.

The flanker picked up two yellow cards for technical offences and his case will go before a Rugby Football Union committee on October 1.

Smith does not expect Evans to be banned but could lose prop Neil Bayliss who will attend on the same night having been sent off for fight-ing at Franklin's Gardens in their defeat to Northampton on September 15.

Bayliss has been suspended for two weeks by the Billesley Common outfit and will hope that is enough to prevent more severe sanction.

Paul Arnold has also been summoned to appear after being cited by Northampton for three alleged acts of foul play.

The lock has been charged with three offences of striking an opponent contrary to Law 10 (4)(a). Northampton scrum-half Mark Robinson will also attend to answer a charge of striking Stott.

Meanwhile, Worcester back row James Collins could come straight into a Pertemps Bees side looking for its first win against London Welsh this Saturday.

The youngster is one of six Warriors Academy products training with the National One side at the moment and is expected to play some part when the Exiles visit Sharmans Cross Road this weekend.

Bees may also be able to call on the services of Uche Oduoza, who spent a few weeks on loan with Moseley last term, if they find themselves short of wingers.

However, four others - Joey Carlisle, Matt Mullen, Alex Grove and Miles Benjamin - could all be unavailable through a combination of prior commitments, injury and, in the case of Mullen and Benjamin, possible call-ups for Worcester's Premiership match with Gloucester.

Bees, the only side in the First Division not to have taken a point from any of their first four games, are also without Dave Knight as the threequarter continues to recover from a knee injury.

Knight missed the start of the season with a shoulder problem and then picked up another injury in the defeat at Moseley. He is, however, expected to begin training next week. But fly half and captain Jon Higgins is back from his tight hamstring and could push Mike Hook, who started at ten against Cornish Pirates, to inside centre.
