Ross Moriarty played his part in a huge defensive effort as Gloucester stunned French leaders La Rochelle to book their place in the European Challenge Cup final.

The Welsh flanker was named in The British & Irish Lions squad to tour New Zealand on Wednesday, and followed it up with an all-action display at the Stade Marcel Deflandre.

Against a La Rochelle team who had not lost at home all season, Gloucester had to produce an incredible defensive effort, with Moriarty racking up ten tackles.

He also chipped in with nine carries and three takes in the lineout, as Gloucester eventually escaped with a 14-16 victory.

That means they could face a West Country derby in the final, with Bath looking to imitate their rivals tomorrow against French opposition.
 

One of the most heroic, brave, composed performances in recent Gloucester history.
