Joe Schmidt's injury updates

GORDON D'ARCY

"He cramped up really badly. It is possible there is a tear there."

BRIAN O'DRISCOLL

"I wouldn't be overly concerned. His back tightened up and he felt he couldn't really stretch out. He was keen to continue. But it just wasn't an option."

CIAN HEALY

"He got winded. He is fine. Just fatigued."

SEAN O'BRIEN

"Hopefully going to be right for Friday night. It was just a risk playing him tonight. We decided not to take that risk."

RICHARDT STRAUSS

"He received a direct blow to the kneecap. The knee swelled up a little bit. We don't believe there is any damage. It is a discomfort thing. Hopefully, in the next 48-to-72 hours he will be back okay."

FERGUS McFADDEN

"He got a kick at the top of the shin. That was pretty sore. He pushed through that. I think he'll be fine. He will have to manage that for the front half of the week."
