The Wales squad management has today issued a medical update following the Wales v England international at the Millennium Stadium.

In relation to George North, he passed head injury protocol tests that were carried out in the medical room in addition to an on pitch assessment. He also showed no signs and symptoms when follow up tests were carried out immediately after the game.

While George is currently symptom free, retrospective video review of the second incident identified the mechanism of injury which was previously unsighted on the field of play. This review has warranted the medical team to manage the player as concussed although the player currently has no signs and symptoms. He will now undertake a graduated return to play protocol with multiple follow up cognitive and physical tests.

Samson Lee has suffered a concussion and will also be undertaking a graduated return to play protocol, consisting of a number of cognitive and physical tests prior to returning to training.

Dan Biggar sustained a laceration to his forehead following an accidental collision with teammate Gethin Jenkins. He will be managed accordingly in the build up to the Scotland fixture.

Leigh Halfpenny sustained a mild neck injury that will be treated by the medical team this week. This injury is unlikely to keep the player out for the following week’s fixture.
