Armstrong had already scored Guernsey’s two tries during a good opening 10 minutes for Raiders at the Nation Two South promotion-chasers before leaving the field before quarter-of-an-hour had been played.

‘He went for another run and I felt he was going to make a break, but then his hamstring went,’ said coach Jordan Reynolds.

‘He is going to have a scan, but I imagine he should be back in April.

‘We only went to Canterbury with eight backs, so losing Anthony early doors didn’t help us.’

Armstrong’s two tries – the first finishing off a move from the back of a scrum and the second an 80m interception – had edged Raiders 10-7 ahead.

However, his injury swung the momentum of the match and by half-time Canterbury were leading 31-10.

Raiders improved after the interval and scored a third try through Matt Creber as the game ended 38-15.
