Reasonably positive news on Robbie Henshaw @henshawrob after the scan.
He is unlikely to feature v @Scotlandteam
He will be monitored and managed by the medical staff over the rest of the week and will not be returning home. 😀#shouldertoshoulder
Asked if Addison had been called up as cover, Schmidt said: "No he's not on his way over.
"That was precautionary, just to make sure that we had fit and able cover should we need a replacement for Robbie.
"We'll have to wait for the results of the scan to find out exactly Robbie's issue, but it could yet just be a cramp or something like that, because we've been travelling of course.
"But if it is more than that and we do leave him out this week, we do feel we've got good cover in the centres."
