Ireland v Wales - Warren Gatland & Alun Wyn Post Match Press Conference

Ireland v Wales - Warren Gatland & Alun Wyn Post Match Press Conference

Rhys Patchell’s third concussion in a year handed Wales a big World Cup injury scare as Ireland topped the world rankings for the first time with a 19-10 victory in Dublin. Fly-half Patchell was bulldozed by flanker CJ Stander in the build-up to the game’s first try, as boss Joe Schmidt toasted his final match at the Aviva Stadium by steering Ireland to the top of World Rugby’s rankings. Wales confirmed that Patchell failed a Head Injury Assessment (HIA) and had suffered a concussion, the number 10 lasting little more than 20 minutes. Now head coach Warren Gatland will face a nervous wait to see if the 26-year-old can recover in time for the World Cup, with Wales kick-starting their Pool D campaign against Georgia on September 23.
