Wasps prop Marty Moore has been released from hospital following precautionary scans on the neck injury he suffered in his side's 31-6 win over Newcastle.

The Irish international was stretchered off early in the first half of the Aviva Premiership clash at the Ricoh Arena, but Wasps confirmed on Sunday night that he had been discharged.

A statement on the club's website read: "Marty has been discharged from hospital, having been referred for scans as a precautionary measure. 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."

Earlier, the club's director of rugby Dai Young revealed he did not believe that Moore had sustained any lasting damage.

The game was delayed for 13 minutes while the Irish international was assessed on the field by medics following a scrum collapse on halfway after 10 minutes.

He was stretchered from the field in a neck brace.

"He experienced neck pain and has gone to hospital," Young said. "There are no symptoms in his arms and legs and one can't be too careful in these situations but hopefully there is no real damage."
