"You know Ben, he's been trying to shake it off, he's had jabs, chiropractors, the lot.

"He's been arguing with the doc, him and the doc aren't best mates at the minute, but you have to do what's right.

"Jamie Jones trains very hard, he's a great professional, he made some fantastic saves and was a big reason why we won."

When asked whether the problem would be long term, Richardson added: "I don't expect it to be long, I only expect it to be days."
