Further tests for Fitzpatrick

Ulster prop Declan Fitzpatrick will face further precautionary tests in Belfast after treatment in Glasgow for an irregular heartbeat.

The 30-year-old tighthead suffered palpitations during Friday's RaboDirect PRO12 27-9 defeat at Glasgow, and was taken to hospital in the Scottish city.

Ulster confirmed a procedure to correct an irregular rhythm in Fitzpatrick's heart had been successful.

Bosses at the Northern Irish province are unsure how long Fitzpatrick will need in recovery.
