Wasps prop Marty Moore was discharged from hospital after he sustained a neck injury in their Premiership game against Newcastle on Sunday.

The Ireland international received treatment on the field for an extended period of time before he was taken off with a stretcher just 10 minutes into the match.

CT scans of Moore's neck came back clear, the42.ie reported on Monday.

"Marty has been discharged from hospital, having been referred for scans as a precautionary measure," a Wasps statement read.

"The CT scans of his neck were clear and he has since returned home. Marty will follow up with Wasps medical staff on Monday morning to assess his progress."

Moore was last week left out of Joe Schmidt’s Ireland squad for the November Internationals following his move to England at the end of last season.
