Nice story about him on the BBC Sport website - now a teacher at Harrow School.

Remember him as a top centre and a top bloke too... Great to hear heís in fine fettle!

Thanks Alec for bringing this up, we forget those players who give there all to LI and rugby, then retire through injury. I personally had forgotten about Joe and I expect a few more of us have. Its very sad that we forget those that move on through injury or other difficulties. Maybe a " Where are they now" thread might help. Any way its good to hear Joe is doing well. Good luck Joe if you are reading this forum.

Old Stonyhurst, decent rugby pedigree right there.

I don't remember him playing that many games for us before his unfortunate injury. He did seem fairly classy when he did play though IIRC

According to espn, 9 matches & 2 tries in 2011-12 - his career ending injury came in a pre-season friendly in August 2012.
