Blues and All Blacks half-back Piri Weepu has undergone precautionary MRI scans to investigate his recent migraine complaints.

Weepu suffered a migraine on March 1st - after the Blues' clash with the Crusaders - as the side were due to fly out to Sydney.

"Piri had no history of any migraines before and was fine while we were overseas," Blues doctor Stephen Kara told the New Zealand Herald

"It did not happen again but it was an unusual presentation at the time.

"Because of the unusual presentation we arranged for him to have an MRI when we returned home. I've had a quick look at the scan and it looks okay."

"We don't know what might have triggered it. It could be lots of things," added Kara. 

"It is not related to any head knock that we know of."
