Could not find anywhere suitable so a new thread for former player news

Phil Burleigh picks up a super rugby contract with the Sunwolves along with Rene Ranger

Not an FP, but quite an illuminating account of Iain Hendersons concussion last week.

Team mates could perhaps have done more than just call the line out, like flag to medics.

Facinating read. The details of the HIA tests themselves were interesting. Wonder how they would test Finn Russell :lol:
Bill Mata. The second coming?

I was looking for an FP thread as well recently when I noticed that Ollie Atkins has been starting for Exeter Chiefs this season :eek:

I had to rewind to check but Visser stops Billy Vinupola in a one on one tackle off a 5m scrum... Rugby full of surprises.

SHC came off the bench for Scarlets's last few minutes against Ospreys yesterday. He threw a pass that even Rhys Patchell had to jump to reach, then made a great break before getting clattered by a double high tackle.

Also saw that Jason Tovey is playing for Cross Keys in the Welsh Prem now.

Wee Dunc is playing well for Wuss v Brizzle, kicking very well

Bressie has made a couple of good carries and clearouts too

It’s probably his assistant coaches that have done all the good work.

Nasi Manu requires chemotherapy treatment. Went in to have an operation on an abnormal growth but now requires chemo.

Blimey. All the best to him.
Don't mention Rory Hutton. I did once but I think I got away with it.

Manu has had absolutely no luck with health and injury since he left NZ. Could and should have been a legend for us but didn't get the chance.

All th best to him, seems a reallly good guy and commands the respect of all who played with him.

See that Jason Tovey has been signed up by Dragons and is starting at 10 against Ulster tomorrow evening
Good luck to him, he deserves a berth in Pro rugby, just hope he doesn't play at his best the next time we meet them!

Good for him. I think he was a very decent 10 for us, and still has a lot to offer. Like you, I'm hoping he doesn't have one of his best games against us.
