Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan ruled out of England's Six Nations decider in Cardiff
BEN Morgan has been ruled out of England’s Six Nations finale with Wales.
Gloucester’s number eight had been told to prove his fitness in a training session tomorrow afternoon.
But the 24-year-old loose-forward’s ankle problem has not even healed enough for him to have that final opportunity.
England boss Stuart Lancaster had hoped Morgan would be ready to take part in full training tomorrow at his side’s Pennyhill Park base in Bagshot.

Morgan is still making progress on his ankle rehabilitation, but it remains unclear whether he will be fit for Gloucester’s Premiership clash against London Welsh at Kingsholm on Saturday, March 23.
Former Dursley youth player Morgan damaged ankle ligaments in England’s 38-18 victory over Scotland on Saturday, February 2.
England wanted him fit for Saturday’s Six Nations clash against Wales in Cardiff (kick-off 5pm) – but Gloucester need him for their Premiership run-in.
Gloucester boss Nigel Davies had rated Morgan’s injury as potentially a six-week lay-off.
So the Cherry and Whites will hope to have him ready for that London Welsh clash on Saturday week.
