Clermont wing Ezeala to be released from hospital
There were concerns for the 18-year-old debutant when he was floored with a head injury attempting to tackle Virimi Vakatawa.
Ezeala’s head took the full impact of Vakatawa, running at full tilt, and he was knocked out during the leaders’ 58-6 victory.
The teenager was treated on the field while officials held a white sheet up so he was out of view before he was carried off on a stretcher.
Clermont confirmed later on Sunday that he had regained consciousness and offered a positive update on Monday.
The club posted a picture on their Twitter account with the player giving a thumbs up in Beaujon Hospital, where he will be kept in under surveillance on Monday and should be discharged on Tuesday.
