Fresh injury blow for Homer

London Irish full-back Tom Homer has been ruled out for at least two months because of a grade two knee sprain.

Homer sustained the damage after only seven minutes of Saturday's 20-15 Aviva Premiership defeat by Harlequins at Twickenham and will return in mid-November at the earliest.

The setback comes after 24-year-old missed the majority of last season with a groin problem.

"It is disappointing for Tom and the club," London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith said.

"He has had a great pre-season and was champing at the bit to be back playing."
