before horrific ankle reconstruction.
Any chance you can post a link to where it was confirmed that Blair had “horrific ankle reconstruction”. I’ve looked and can only find stories confirming that he fractured his ankle and had surgery but no mention of a reconstruction. Give he was injured in July but back for the start of pre season training in November makes me think that no reconstruction took place. Thanks in advance Flow.

I nearly posted this earlier, his performances have been that poor that shifting the ball along to his winger something any centre is expected to do has prompted high praise.

Another clueless wonder that has nothing good to say ever. My opinion only obviously.

Paul Franze and Newlove are what you call bad performances

The point he is making is having bones pinned or plated, as ghastly as it is, is not ankle reconstruction.
Repairing any of the 8 or so ankle ligaments (bone connectors) would require reconstructive surgery.
He knows this because hes probably had this performed.

Had it done twice first time had it pinned then played again same ankle went then had some major surgery on it. could say hold you hands up to them who keep praising him and they admit hes being a poor signing so fare . Noticed a said so far fumper me old bean you might become right yet when he's and a nice English winter training here lmao let's hope I will get stuck into that humble pie if he does as should people who think he will be better but turns out not. But I am sure they will deny saying it next year. :roll: coyf

I believe that reconstruction relates to muscular injuries, I had my knee reconstructed because I tore my ACL and MCL playing for Lock Lane, I maybe wrong at which point I would hold up my hands and learn from the experience. Why do you fail to do so? I have no “horse in this race”, just want the best for OUR club and I will defend any player where a poster uses blatant misdirection to try and emphasise a point.

To use a slur from your good self against another poster “I googled the answer” ;)

Pinned??? Reconstruction??? Not the same thing mate. I admire your commitment to your beliefs, even when proved wrong but you’d get more credence from holding your hands up and saying “sorry guys, I got it wrong”

We will, see who eats heats humble pie on this I hope it's me and he gets man off Steel next year. But as a, Rugby man you now deep down he's crocked not a good thing in rugby. When can't even jump I admire your hope he improves but you are in the minority who thinks he will with a good off season.
