Bath Rugby: Matt Banahan will have scan on knee problem
Bath centre Matt Banahan is to have a scan on his knee after being forced off during the West Country club's 30-23 Aviva Premiership win over Wasps.
The giant three-quarter limped off during the closing stages as Bath made it two wins from two at the start of the new season, punishing Wasps for a series of costly errors.
Banahan left the Rec in a brace, and Bath skills coach Brad Davis admits it will be a waiting game to determine the severity of the problem.
He said: "Matt has damaged his knee and we will know more about it in the next 48 hours, he will go to have a scan and we will wait and see what the results are, but he has been put in a brace."

Head coach Toby Booth added: "All injuries are a worry. The people who are near the top of the table at the end of the season are the sides whose players stay fit and healthy, giving them more firepower at their disposal.
"We have a few dents in the squad already but we will have Sam Vesty, Stephen Donald and Tom Heathcote to come back soon."
Banahan had earlier run in Bath's first try, handing off a weak tackle from Elliot Daly in his way.
Kyle Eastmond scored his first try since joining the club from St Helens and Davis added: "He is a smart player, we knew that when we signed him. His ability has never been in doubt and the try he scored was a contender for try of the season. Apart from that he has a lot about his game in terms of passing, kicking and running."
