The 27-year-old was involved in a collision less than a minute after a collision, which resulted in the game being stopped for 15 minutes while being cared for.
Fatialofa was then taken from the field on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital where he is now being held for the second night after the collision.

On Sunday, his wife Tatiana went to Twitter to thank everyone for the “overwhelming” support for her and Fatialofa.
“I have not yet had the opportunity to answer one person, but @michaelfats is overwhelmed (in the best way) by all prayers and support,” Tatiana tweeted.
‘It REALLY helps to keep his mood high, just so thankfully honest for the outpouring of love! We can feel tangibly the presence of God that surrounds us in this terrible situation and have so much faith that it makes him good. “

Rugby’s Warriors director Alan Solomons said during his post-match press conference: “It seemed as if he dropped his head when he came in contact.
“I didn’t study the images, but it looks like he got a blow in the neck.
“For me, such a neck injury is a huge concern and I’m worried about it, but the doctors have taken all precautions and done everything possible.”
Saracens emphatically won the game by scoring 10 times in the 62-5 victory
Warriors said on their website: “We will provide a further update on the state of Michael when we have one.
“On behalf of Michael, we want to thank everyone who has passed on messages of support and concern.”
Fatialofa is currently in his second season with the Warriors after switching from Super Rugby side Hurricanes in New Zealand in March 2018.
