Wales have suffered a further setback to their back-three stocks after Eli Walker was ruled out of the World Cup because of a hamstring injury.

Ospreys wing Walker, who was recently called in to replaced the injured Leigh Halfpenny in the 31, has been replaced in the squad by flanker Ross Moriarty.

Warren Gatland subsequently only has three specialist wings in Alex Cuthbert, Hallam Amos and George North, with full-back Liam Williams also an option.

Matthew Morgan has played full-back before but the loss of Walker to go with Halfpenny is yet another blow to Wales ahead of the upcoming showpiece.
