I think I may have played my last game of rugby. I lasted a whole 10 minutes on Saturday before having to come off injured. I felt something rip in my left bicep when making a tackle. Ouch.
We had a few more injuries during the game so I volunteered to come back on for the last 20. We very nearly won (they scored in the last 5). Shame.
I'm seeing a physio later this afternoon but in my conversation over the phone with BUPA's triage it sounds like i've ruptured a tendon. In addition to a lot of pain, when I tense my left arm the bicep goes in completely the wrong direction. Ouch.
If it's as bad as I think it is it will require an operation which will mean no rugby for 6 months. That's this season gone, and in reality will probably be my last.
It hasn't sunk in yet but sure it will hit me later.
