‘He was knocked out, so we’ll have to see where we stand with that and the concussion protocols, but there was no fracture to his neck or anything like that, which is good to hear.

‘I haven’t actually seen him, but that’s the report I have had back from the physios.

‘It was a brave challenge, but it was one he had to make.’
