Sexto out till Feb

Postby OTT » December 18th, 2014, 4:45 pm

Ireland fly-half Jonathan Sexton has been ruled out until February 14 next year following a series of headaches and nausea.

L'Equipe report that Sexton has been visiting a neurologist in Paris on numerous occasions since he suffered a concussion in the Test win over Australia.

Dr. Jean-François Cherman has now stood Sexton down until that February date in order to ensure he fully recovers.

The Ireland number ten is set to return to Leinster next season after two years in Paris.

Sexton is allowed to train with his team-mates, but with no contact.

Balls. 14th is the France game. And it will be the first bit of game time he will have gotten in 3 months (assuming this schedule sticks)
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick

Rule him out of the France game I reckon. Schmidt may even spare him during the 6N

Will be good to give another 10 a run in meaningful fixtures.

Also very good to see them taking no risks and looking after his head.

paranoia aside the leaps and bounds regarding treatment of concussion last year or two are great to see

can see Madigan starting at 10 for us on Joes orders in 2 or 3 out of Munster/Ulster/Cardiff
we should still be able to see off Italy but his lack of gametime will be a worry (but his welfare comes first)
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

Yeah, it certainly does that alright! It also makes a mess of our chance of holding the 6N title which is a pity. But hopefully we will be a bit less dependent on Sexton come the world cup.

Joe categorically denied having any influence on provincial team selection. Obviously there is an element of having to say that. But given how set in his ways MOC is of picking the team he wants, I can't see Joe having a huge amount of influence

Rob Penney I think was the one (not Joe) who blurted out provinces get free hand for HC but Ireland can make requests for league games, hence Gopperth not starting until Toulon game despite being the annointed one
Dont let the nice guy act fool ye, if Joe wants Madigan at 10 in a few games he'll be there and if he is we also know its not cos MOC wants him there

The fact that he can still train, albeit without contact, is surely still a plus...?

Good to see head injuries are being taking seriously though.
Can I raise a practical question at this point? Are we gonna do "Stonehenge" tomorrow?

He can't, unless someone has been telling porkies. The 12-week layoff is mandatory, not something subject to cognitive tests, is it not?

So, if he does return, do one/two of the reported concussions just get forgotten about?!

I would imagine its a movable feast. Surely the timeframe will be reassessed if he's fine earlier than expected?

I'd rather that than have him come back on the 14th Feb regardless of whether he's fine or not, which is entirely possible.

Not quite. ROG quoted over the weekend that JS is experiencing headaches even during running. While it's not during every session it sounds serious enough if that's the case.
