Gloucester Rugby this evening provided the following update on the injury status of their two England Elite Playing Squad backs, Olly Morgan and Mike Tindall.
Morgan, a first half replacement for Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu, was himself forced to leave the action shortly before half time whilst Tindall required treatment after scoring Gloucester's third try in the final moments of the 26-10 victory at Leeds Carnegie on Sunday.
