Ireland prop Simon Best has been admitted to hospital in Bordeaux for tests following complaints of feeling unwell and a loss of feeling down his right side.

Best, who was named in the Ireland squad to play Argentina this weekend, was immediately transferred to hospital accompanied by the Ireland Team doctor where further tests are currently being carried out to determine the cause of these symptoms.

The Ulster front row has been named on the bench for Sunday's World Cup clash with Argentina in Paris.
