“I injured my hamstring while jackal ling against Leinster and I may have to look at my method I overstretched my leg and then pushed off and made it worse and the scan showed that I tore one of the tendons and the hamstring muscle detached from the bone at the top.”
It wasn’t a good feeling but the euphoria of winning the tournament again carried me through. The surgeon attached it back to the bone and it has healed well with everything progressing on track.
“I came out of the hospital in the week of the playoff semi-finals and then the weekend after the playoff final it was my brother’s wedding in Tonga. It has been a hectic few weeks with my son Jacob also celebrating his first birthday and it has been really enjoyable to have time away relaxing with the family.”
Rehab wise and training I had videos from the England guys letting me know what simple things I could do and I was able to crack on with it. I am now off crutches and tomorrow I go into camp with England and everything will start then.
I had a few injuries in recent seasons that it is a good chance to come back better than before and I was given the three-month plan but things actually happen quite rapidly.
