Bradley Davies also suffered an ACJ tear after a heavy fall in training, “It was a bit of a freak accident. As I hit the ground on my shoulder another player landed on me. It was obvious there was something wrong straight away.

”His position as a ‘lock’ meant the injured area was particularly vulnerable. The arm was immobilised in a sling for 6 weeks and Bradley commenced training after 8 weeks playing first team rugby after 18 weeks.

“The operation was very straightforward and I left hospital the following morning in a sling but my range of motion was back straight away. I think the best recommendation I can give for this product, and the confidence I now have, is that prior to the injury I wore shoulder protection and for the past four years, since recovering from the surgery, I have not worn any.”
