Frostbite forces ex-Bath Rugby's Lewis Moody out of Yukon trek
Frostbite has forced former England rugby captain and Bath Rugby star Lewis Moody to quit a charity trek.
The one-time Bath and Leicester player was three days into the eight-day Yukon Arctic Ultra Marathon when he began to lose sensation in his finger.
The Bradford on Avon-based Moody had covered 85 miles in the first two days.
The retired rugby star was raising money for HOPEHIV and was part of a team with the charity’s founder Phil Wall, and polar explorer Alan Chambers.

Moody, 34, said: “I am obviously absolutely gutted. This was my greatest challenge and to be forced to withdraw is shattering.” His team also had to withdraw.
