Leigh Halfpenny has been discharged from hospital after injuring his neck during yesterday's game. He was carried off the pitch on a stretcher during the last few moments of the game.
Halfpenny underwent scans last night to rule out any serious neck injury.
In a statement today, he said:
I want to say thank you to all of the medical teams who have looked after me following my injury yesterday.The paramedics, WRU and Millennium Stadium medical teams were outstanding. All of the staff at University Hospital Wales were also amazing.Everyone has been so supportive and the care that I have had has been incredibly professional and second to none. I'd also like to thank all of those who have been sending me messages of support following the injury.
The Welsh Rugby Union say that Halfpenny will now undertake a period of treatment and rehabilitation to ensure a swift return to play.
