Six Nations reviewing a number of HIA incidents from Paris game

France's Six Nations defeat against Ireland has led to flyhalf Matthieu Jalibert, scrumhalf Antoine Dupont and flanker Kevin Gourdon being ruled out of the next match against Scotland with injuries.

With the player visibly limping as he was supported off the field and down the tunnel, Owens repeatedly sought confirmation of the HIA call as it certainly appeared that the player had suffered an injury to his leg rather than his head.

"The HIA Review Processor is reviewing a number of incidents from the France v Ireland match in the senior men's championship".

He initially tapped his head as if suspecting a head injury.

He noted 19-year-old Jalibert's debut was cut short earlier "when he, too, hurt a knee in collision with Bundee Aki's".

"As part of that protocol, there is a process by which HIA/concussion-related incidents are reviewed".

The HIA Review Processor can refer the specific incidents to a HIA Review Panel which could then make recommendations to SNRL for further education on HIA protocols or disciplinary action.

A review group found France had not complied with HIA protocol and/or the relevant laws of the game after Atonio was replaced during the dying stages, with preferred tighthead Rabah Slimani coming back on. He was referred for a HIA and never returned to the field of play.

"Depending on their findings, Six Nations Rugby Limited (SNRL) will be considering the next steps in respect of those incidents".

With the match doctor confirming the HIA, Owens had little choice but to accept the ruling and resume the game.

Irish players protested the decision with Ireland outhalf Johnny Sexton arguing with match referee Nigel Owens, while TV pictures showed Dupont being helped down the tunnel by two French medical staff.
