Michael Fatialofa, the Rugby Union lock from New Zealand, is being held in St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington in the United Kingdom after a terrible neck injury he sustained on the 4th of January. Authorities have confirmed that he is stable, albeit still in intensive care.
Fatialofa’s wife, Tatiana, updated fans via Twitter in an emotional message thanking followers for their support. She’s reported that his spirits are high thanks to the outpouring of love they’ve received and that he’s getting the best of care. She asked her husband’s admirers to keep praying for his improvement and posted a picture of her kissing Fatialofa while he lay in his hospital bed in a neck brace.
The giant Worcester Warriors second-rower had only been playing for roughly a minute when he was injured in the 51st minute of the game against Saracens Football Club. The 27-year old superstar, formerly of the Hurricanes in his home country, was initially treated on the field but was eventually carried off on a stretcher. Director of Rugby for the Warriors Alan Solomons has said he’s very concerned about the injury.
The latest update states that he spent Sunday night in hospital as well and that experts are continuously assessing his situation. The Club has promised to keep everyone in the loop regarding Fatialofa’s condition going forward.
Fatialofa signed with the Worcester Warriors in March 2018 for a contract of two years and was going from strength to strength with his new team before this trauma occurred.
