Sore Leinster fans were today greeted with further pain as we found out that Richardt Strauss will be out for the season due to a heart condition that will see him require surgery. A player who has been at the heart of the most successful Leinster and Irish provincial side to date, his presence will undoubtedly be sorely missed by players and fans alike. While at times like these rugby takes a back seat over the person’s welfare, I am both hopeful and confident he will come back stronger and fitter for both Leinster and Ireland.
I have included a few videos below, thank you to RaboPro12 and Tap Tackle for the clips. Typical of Strauss, they are not flashy, just a hard working talented pro doing his job, and bursting a few defences.
Leinster v Ospreys
Leinster v Glasgow
And finally, my favourite of all……..
