I had only just returned back playing for Hove Rugby after a short 5 year break and I was keen and eager to get back into the mixer. After a couple of games of shaking off the ring rust, I sadly got hit late in my third game back, which resulted in a trip to A&E to deal with a severely bruised back and a lower trapped nerve in my spinal area.
I was told I would need months of physio and rehab to get the movement back and knowing that physios aren’t the cheapest, I was concerned as to how I was going to be able to do this.
Luckily however, Hove Friends who I wasn’t even aware of, got in touch and not only showed compassion to my injury but also wanted to assist me in helping with my recovery.
They covered my physio bills, which over the Xmas period was a massive help and I’m very grateful for their support. It’s great to know that the Friends can support when needed and it gives comfort when playing for Hove, knowing you have that extra insurance.
