    From the interview Holbrook has just done with the Star it seems that he will still be having difficulty eating. I hope this was a real fluke injury.

    These type of operations really knock the stuffing out of you. Its going to be a long way back. If he had not gone to have it checked out immediately I dread to think of the consequences re sepsis etc.

    Im obviously not suggesting a grim outcome, just thinking out loud. Is it a 100% certainty that he will return to playing rugby? Is it a case of waiting and seeing how he recovers over time? Is their any chance that he may never recover to a level where he can play contact sport?

    The last line of the article on the website says... Hopefully he will pull on the saints shirt again next year.

    Sounds like a big recovery ahead of him, with the possibility he could never play again.

    I have a relative with a very similar thing she had the complication of digestion and lost a lot of weight, hopefully because Matty is young and in good pre physical condition he will recover, I hope so he deserves it. On thing that has crossed my mind is that he always runs in hard almost suicidal is it possible he took some big hits in that abdominal region and the Ferres hit was one too far.

    Its quite possible Stiddy. Ive met Matty once and he is a tall lad. Also very lean. He’s just the right height to take some shoulder impact around the stomach. One could argue that forwards can be to lean and would benefit from the extra bit of padding that the forwards had years back. If you are running with the pace that Lees does not having much body fat perhaps it leaves the mid section more vulnerable. I could be way off though.

    Yeh his future doesn’t look certain. Fingers crossed he makes a full recovery.

    Good Luck tot he lad, hope is recovery goes well. I hope he is back for the start of next year, but right now the rugby should be secondary.

    All injury times differ person to person and if there are post op set backs. Shay Given had a 1cm of bowel/intestine tear whilst at Newcastle and came back after 7 weeks. The surgeon announced that it did not show up on scans and if he had not investigated in theatre it would have had serious implications for his future. I hope Matty got the same swift care and makes a similar come back.

    If he hasn't had a temporary colostomy or a re-section we could be looking at 3 months before he can do any training, the reported quick action of the Leeds Club and Leeds Hospital probable saved him from being in a more critical condition.

    If you are in a state of boredom and read this thread Matty. Stay strong, take your time and get well first and fit after that. Lets hope Ashy and Kyle fill the gap and you can celebrate an Old Trafford win.

    Walker? He's been utter rubbish for most of the season. He has potential but no awards due for him or any other Leeds player. Even Handley and Hurrell who have scored tries have been truly horrific defensively.

    Trueman also hasn't had a great season, neither have Cas. He's come good recently and is a top class prospect. Smithies is the one I think should get it. He's probably three years younger than Lees, but has been one of Wigans best players this year from what I've seen.
