Mo­ri­arty on the move next year

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

ROSS Mo­ri­arty has re­jected the of­fer of a new con­tract from Glouces­ter but will still be see­ing out the fi­nal year of his con­tract.

The St He­lens-born flanker wants to as­sess what op­tions he has to­wards the end of next sea­son, clos­ing the door on an im­me­di­ate fu­ture in Wales.

The 22-year-old son of for­mer cross code in­ter­na­tional Paul, is the No1 name on War­ren Gat­land’s shop­ping list of play­ers he wants to see re­turn to Wales.

The WRU are pre­pared to make him the high­est paid player in Wales and he would be on sig­nif­i­cantly more than the £350,000 earned by Sam War­bur­ton.

Gat­land faces a fight for Mo­ri­arty’s ser­vices as he is ex­pected to be in much de­mand from Premier­ship clubs who will be able to bet­ter any of­fers he is made via the WRU.

Glouces­ter are keen for Mo­ri­arty to stay with them while ri­val Premier­ship clubs will have to wait un­til the New Year be­fore they can of­fer him a con­tract.
