Second Rower Pete Hampshire suffered a nasty femur fracture in a friendly game against Moortown on Saturday 15th May. Pete had this message:

“Thanks to everyone at the club for the best wishes and messages of support. I am hoping to get some physio sorted and be back August/September.

After suffering my injury I was taken to Leeds straight from the game where I was operated on later that day. I made excellent progress being able to walk within a couple of days, I returned home on Wednesday evening where everything then took a turn for the worse, I was bed bound and unable to move for the next two days (Thursday Friday).

I then was brought to hospital early Saturday morning with the concern of there being an infection/sepsis as stated by the doctor, I’ve since had fluid taken off my knee which has given me a little more movement back but tested negative for anything infectious. 

I have now been discharged and can begin everything at home and start getting back to normal. I had to await medication and some equipment to be brought before I could leave hospital.

The four months is an advised recovery to be back to walking properly and unaided but I hope to make a quicker recovery. I am hoping to be back down supporting the boys as soon as I am able to also get along to help with some of the age grade training/games. 

I work as a police constable in the Bradford District but at the moment I am unsure when I will be able to return.

Regards Peter.”
