ACL injury: Jack Moates

London Wasps backs Jack Moates and Ben Jacobs are both likely to miss the remainder of the season through injury.

Moates, the scrum-half, suffered an ACL injury in last weekend's game against Grenoble and will need surgery. His return to play timeframe has been set at six-nine months.

Jacobs, the centre, badly damaged ankle ligaments in the same game and he also requires surgery. He is likely to be out 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 London Wasps boss Dai Young.

"I know they will be working incredibly hard with our medical team to get back right."
