Jack Moates: Faces at least six months out through injury
Wasps director of rugby Dai Young has confirmed that Jack Moates and Ben Jacobs will miss the rest of the season through injury.
Scrum-half Moates suffered a knee ligament tear during last weekend's Amlin Challenge Cup win over Grenoble and requires surgery. The 21-year-old could be out of action for up to nine months.
Centre Jacobs tore ankle ligaments in the same game and also needs surgery. The Australian will be sidelined for a minimum of six months.
"It's a huge shame to lose two players for the remainder of the season in one go and it's a real blow to Jack and Ben," said Young.
"I know they will be working incredibly hard with our medical team to get back right."
