The British and Irish Lions have just released an official injury update on Jared Payne.
The Ireland and Ulster back has been out of action since the victory over the Chiefs where he suffered a bang during the game. Although he passed the HIA processes in the aftermath of that fixture, he has still suffered from migraines and as a result will take no further part on the Lions tour.

The full update from the Lions can be found below.
Jared Payne will take no further part in the British & Irish Lions Tour.
Payne stayed in Wellington for tests after reporting with a headache before the Hurricanes game.
British & Irish Lions Head Coach Warren Gatland said: “While the findings of Jared’s tests have been normal he still has migraine and will not be fit to train until his symptoms have settled. The specialists are happy that the symptoms are not concussion related and he is expected to recover fully. We wish him a speedy recovery.”
Hopefully, the migraines aren’t too serious and we will Payne back playing for Ulster and Ireland soon.
