However still in pursuit of a careerer he was still in the minds of some very decent clubs but at the end of July the worst thing happened. The usual thing with an ACL. Not an horrific tackle or anyone to blame, just an awkward landing but the second he did it I knew. You see, I have dislocated my knee more times than I can remember as I lived most of my adult life with a failed set of ligaments.
I ruptured mine at just 16 also in a similar way. I didn't have the club to fly me to the states and after 5 years and 2 operations was told it simply could not be repaired. Now im on 6 operations on that knee and finally I have full stability and mobility thanks to the fantastic surgeon Mr Manjure http://www.thekneeandhipsurgeon.com/ but that took till my mid 30's to find a surgeon that could give me my sporting life back and actually my career.

Due to my experience we had already taken great steps to try and prevent this accident happening, in particular my son had much stronger Glutes and Quads than the average and was highly committed to S&C. In fact, he was in peak condition and the professionals would always comment on his build and strength. Yet, this still happened. An accident? Or was it simply inevitable? Is there something genetically built in meaning this was bound to happen based on the excursion placed. Was this a manufacturing defect in the aircraft that could only sustain so many riggers of take off and landing?
