Foxsports have the news that tortured soul Clyde Rathbone is at age 31 making a comeback for Brumbies selection:
Rathbone retired from rugby prematurely in 2009 after being sidelined repeatedly with groin, knee, facial and hamstring issues following 26 Tests and 52 games with the Brumbies.
The tackle-shedding flyer revealed in February this year he had a life-long battle with depression.
A Brumbies’ official confirmed Rathbone hoped to snare a vacant backs position.
“He’s one of several players looking at filling our last few positions,” he said.
“Clyde will continue on when we get back into full pre-season training in October and see how he goes. “
We hope for his sake it goes well. But will admit to some concern a nasty injury awaits sooner rather than later.
