Thanks to the fine work of Gloucester's medical staff, the injury lay off was curtailed and the winger made his return to action as Gloucester United travelled to Sale Jets in Round 2 of the Aviva Premiership A League.
"It's been a really good recovery, it's not been as bad as other injuries I've had. Originally they initially said eight weeks and I'm back in five, so I've managed to get in some good training and it's been great to be back playing and I'm looking forward to being back involved now".
Unfortunately, United were beaten by a last minute Sale try to be defeated in a game they had dominated. For May, the result was disappointing after a spirited performance but it's great to be back on the pitch.
"Tonight, I felt I was a little indecisive but that comes from not playing but I grew into the game as it went on and you've got to be really proud of the defence that the boys put in but the penalties we gave away really cost us.
"I tried to get messages across to stop conceding penalties and their score was always going to happen with the penalty count rising. Lessons have been learnt but we defended really well, came together really well as a team despite the changes.
"It's always difficult playing with guys you're not used to playing with but everyone coped really well and I enjoyed playing with the likes of Steph Reynolds and Ryan Mills around me".
Gloucester's second try should've secured the game after May made a scorching break to set up Luke Hume for the score. All these are positives signs for May;
"I feel physically in good shape, so that's boosted my confidence. I felt I was available for selection in the Saracens' game but I'm glad I didn't play, as I would have felt to be thrown in the deep end so to speak so I needed the eighty-minutes tonight to get going again.
"It's good to get a run around, get my hands on the ball and I feel alright now which is great. I wanted to test my elbow out, which felt fine and all good. Throughout the game I was happy with my impact for the team".
