Sadly, during a training session on August 29th a drill collision lead to a three column break in my spine which required emergency surgery. As you can see below in the photo I had two metal rods put in my back to stabilise the injury and prevent further damage.
Rugby is a huge part of my life not only playing but coaching as well and in order to get back to doing the things I love and live a pain free life I need to get the metal work removed. I am determined to get back on that pitch to pursue my rugby career.
Due to Covid the NHS cannot remove the rods for at least two years but they need to come out to allow me to return to a pain free normal life and rugby.
Any donations would be amazing, however, I understand times are hard for everybody at the moment, a share would be just as helpful.
Thank you for all your help and support
