Triple injury blow hits Bath Rugby pack

Bath Rugby face a second-row injury crisis after losing both Peter Short and Stuart Hooper during today's 19-15 victory over Harlequins.

Hooper has suffered a suspected broken arm, while Short - who has endured an injury-blighted season - strained a hamstring.

That leaves Bath with just two out-and-out locks ahead of the final three games of the regular season, Danny Grewcock and Ignacio Fernandez-Lobbe.

In addition, prop David Flatman was a last-minute withdrawal today with a tight hamstring, meaning Bath now have just one fit specialist loosehead, Nathan Catt.

The list of injured forwards at Bath is now a long one. Simon Taylor (Achilles), skipper Luke Watson (twisted knee), Lewis Moody (knee ligaments) and David Barnes (neck) are also in the medical room.
