Thank God! I thought you were going to say he was one of the new signings!

Yes I listened to it on the podcast. I have a bit of sympathy for the guy now. Even if he was as much use as a chocolate fire guard

Sorry I know this is not pc,but plenty of us have been through personal problems and have had to hold it altogether at home and work. Ok you could argue in ‘public eye’ but really there is a limit to the allowances you have to make for someone - how old is he? Too old to be that thing that falls out of the sky frozen.

Sorry, but that's an unfairly harsh judgement. While you might be able to turn up and function at work under the stress of a divorce - especially one where you risk losing access to a child - I bet you wouldn't be able to operate at 100%. You might be able to put up a convincing front, but you'd have to be completely devoid of emotion not to let it get to you in at least small way.

In most jobs, that doesn't matter that much, because most jobs have quite a lot of leeway. You can have a bad day at the office, or even a run of mediocre ones, and things can still turn out okay.

Professional rugby isn't like that. There is someone on the other side of the pitch trying to take advantage of any slight weakness, and it's a sport where fine margins can make an enormous difference to a result. That goes doubly so for props. Who have a direct physical contest, one on one or two on one twenty odd times a game. There's nowhere to hide. You get found out.

If you listen to the whole podcast, Hask makes a decent point about mental health in rugby - which is a genuine concern. PDJ is the third Quins player this year I've heard talking about struggling to cope with something emotional rather than physical. I don't think us normal people have any idea of the pressure these guys put themselves under.
