Barnham went down injured in the final seconds of Sunday's win against the Cornish Pirates which guaranteed Nottingham second place in the league.

The 22-year-old's condition has been monitored throughout the week, but the severity of the injury will not be clear until he undergoes a final series of tests.

Green and Whites backs coach Ben Johnston said: "At the moment we don't know how long Fin is going to be out, so it is a bit of a waiting game with him."

With an historic play-off semi-final berth already secured, Nottingham will rest a number of players who have picked up slight knocks in recent weeks.

Captain Brent Wilson, who was ruled out at the eleventh hour against the Cornish Pirates with a back complaint, has trained strongly but has not been considered for selection this week.

No. 8 Alex Shaw, centre Tim Streather and full-back Andrew Savage all came off with slight injuries last week and will be given every chance to regain full-fitness before the semi-final first leg away on the first weekend of May.

Johnston said: "We are looking after those few people with niggles.

"We are still training next week and we hope to have them all back at their best by then."
