Ireland coach provides Johnny Sexton injury update

Johnny Sexton suffered a nasty-looking facial injury during Ireland’s win against Scotland at Murrayfield today.

Speaking post-match, Ireland boss Schmidt said Sexton had failed his Head Injury Assessment after taking a blow in the build-up his side’s second try.


“Johnny failed an HIA,” said Schmidt. “He hit the ground quite hard but he’s pretty good now. We’d be pretty confident that he’d bounce back quickly.”

The Ireland head coach said Sexton had been stamped on accidentally by one of his own players in the first half, while also taking a stamp to his ankle.
