Wales' Moriarty suffers fresh injury setback

From BBC - November 15, 2017

Wales flanker Ross Moriarty has suffered a fresh back injury in training with Gloucester.

The 23-year-old has played once, on 4 November against Leicester, since injury forced him out of the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand in July.

Gloucester boss Johan Ackermann said no timescale has been put on his return.

"It's not the same injury, but it is similar symptoms that we just manage and treat," said Ackermann.

"They do not want to give us a timeline because it just adds pressure to the player, but obviously we have backed off a bit with him coming back into games.

"He's doing his rehab, he's doing his running - all those things to get him back, and once they feel they have built him up enough then they will get him back on the field."

Moriarty's injury recovery after the Lions tour meant he was not included in the squad for Wales' autumn internationals which began with a 29-21 defeat by Australia on 11 November.
