Urm to be honest I think its quite disrespectful to be saying yes he's gone. This man has lost his livelihood and probably the only thing he may be good at. His injury could have meant him dying. To be honest I might have gone quite serious but I play in the front row and I dont want to lose my chance to walk like that.
Whether or not he was a good player is whether to be seen. But to lose tour career like that must be tough.
