Moore is set to see a specialist later this week.

Head-coach Dan McFarland had praised Stockdale's performance at full-back on Friday in a youthful back line.

“We knew they would get a lot of possession so it was important we defended well.

“We wanted to build that white wall but that required a lot of effort and a lot of system application which they did.

“Jared Payne runs a very tight ship there for us. Edinburgh tested us but we held really strong.

“We looked long and hard at ourselves after the Glasgow game and as the week went on we demonstrated more and more accuracy. It was fantastic.”
