Ireland Have Had Their First Permanent Injury Of The Rugby World Cup

We have seen the last of Jared Payne at this Rugby World Cup. A foot fracture has ensured that Romania at Wembley was his last game.

The IRFU released the statement confirming the injury and confirming that a decision on a replacement will be made after Sunday.

Following training on Wednesday, due to continued discomfort, Jared had further scans which revealed a foot fracture. He will be returning to Ireland for specialist opinion and will take no further part in the tournament.

No decision on a replacement will be made until after Sunday's fixture at the Millennium Stadium.
