Ireland prop Marty Moore is out of the Six Nations but has announced he will join Wasps at the end of the season.

Moore, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury, has been replaced in the squad by Connacht's Finlay Bealham. The news came on the same day Moore announced he will be leaving Leinster at the end of the season for Aviva Premiership side Wasps.

"I'm really pleased to have signed a contract with Wasps to join next season," Moore, who has 10 Ireland caps, said. "I am looking forward to working with Dai Young and his coaching team as well as the squad and am excited about the challenge ahead in the Aviva Premiership.

"However, up until the move I am fully committed to Leinster Rugby and I would like to thank everyone here as well as the Leinster fans for the support they have shown me."

In positive news for Ireland Jonathan Sexton is progressing well in his recovery from the knock to the head he received against Wasps on Saturday while Robbie Henshaw is also fully fit. Sexton has passed the first two stages of the Head Injury Assessment and will complete the third on Tuesday.
