Zebo boost for Ireland

Date published: July 23 2015

Ireland wing Simon Zebo has given concerned supporters a boost ahead of the World Cup as he declared his recent knee injury was now behind him.

Early last week Zebo had to leave training and receive treatment from the Irish medical team and put on an ice pack. However it was not as bad as first feared. 

"It was my kneecap. It kinda (went) out and in. It was that feeling anyway. It was quite worrying for a few minutes," the wing revealed to munsterrugby.ie.

"It's all good, though. The scans showed up clear, just a little bit of damage, but nothing to keep me out for too long. It's fine.

"I took a few days' rest. I had to take a few meds and put up the leg, but I feel fresh now again. We were doing speed training and things like that and I was moving quite well."
