If he's unavailable, who starts at eight? Josh Navidi at eight?

He can do it but I'd like to see Moriarty developed at 8. A Moriarty/Shingler Tipuric Navidi back row is pretty good though.

Big loss, he's easily your best 8. Moriarty can do a job but he's not a carrying option.

That is a big loss for Wales. When playing and on form, I think he is the best #8 in the world.

He's certainly up there with Billy, Read and Picamoles. Different players, different styles.

I think he is a more balanced player than Read, Picamoles or Vunipola myself. Just seems to be strong in every area.

I don't think he's the standout, I'm not sure there is one currently. He's a similar player to Read as in he's quite athletic, Read perhaps better in the air and link play. Picamoles and Vunipola obviously better carriers, if that's what your pack needs. Some very good players, all top draw for me.
