Plymouth Albion's bid to bring in Worcester prop George Porter on loan has fallen through.
Albion had announced a bid to bring him back to the Brickfields last week, but injuries at his parent club mean he can no longer be spared.
Porter joined the Warriors from Albion in the summer and played in their Amlin Cup win over Parma last week.
Porter's Worcester team-mate and former Albion back Sione Tuipulotu has joined the club on loan from Sixways.
Albion have until 27 January to strengthen their squad before the RFU transfer deadline.
