The home side took the lead after 18 minutes, with striker Aaron Williams scoring his first goal of the season.

But Morecambe drew level mid-way second half through a Michael Rose free-kick.

The result leaves the Exiles deep in relegation trouble and six points from safety.

It says everything about Wales' current back-row riches that Taulupe Faletau could be on the bench for next Saturday's RBS 6 Nations clash against Scotland.

Number eight Faletau has provided a world-class presence for Wales since being handed his Test debut in 2011, making 60 starts during a 63-cap international career.

But the Bath forward's injury-hit season opened a door for Gloucester prospect Ross Moriarty, who underlined his quality with a memorable performance in Wales' 21-16 loss to England nine days ago.

With flankers Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric also in prime form - and Faletau now fully fit and playing - Wales boss Rob Howley faces an intriguing four-into-three selection challenge later this week.

Ross is playing really well at the moment, and so are the other two.

We work for each other, and whoever plays is worthy of playing. And to be honest, those three right now are playing really well.

The boys are playing well at the moment, and it is down to the coaches to pick what team they pick.
