The Ireland squad medical team have issued an update following Ireland’s win over South Africa in the first game of the November Tests.

Chris Henry’s condition continues to be investigated following an episode on Saturday morning where he was unwell and experienced some weakness. The working diagnosis is a severe migraine.

With Jared Payne, preliminary scans show a sprain in his foot. He will undergo further scans and a consultant review on Wednesday and will rehab with the National Medical Team.

Payne made a solid debut for his adopted country against the Springboks before departing late into the second half.

Rory Best’s rehab is progressing well and he has commenced light running. He will continue to be managed by the National Medical Team and the prognosis is positive.
