"As a professional rugby player injuries are an unfortunate part of the job. Therefore having a Physiotherapist with a high level of experience and knowledge is crucial. I was very lucky to have Simon as my Physiotherapist for about 2 seasons early on in my career while I was on an Academy contract with Ulster. Simon's professionalism and work ethic was crucial in keeping me fit and healthy and out on the rugby pitch. With his guidance and treatment it ultimately helped me achieve my goal of getting a full professional contract and furthering my career."
