Rogers : Lewsey ended my surfing
November 22, 2003
Mat Rogers the Australian full-back has reason to remember the last time he played against Josh Lewsey in Melbourne in June.
He was on the end of a bone crunching tackle from the Wasps man that left him with more than one broken rib.
"It ruined my surfing career," said Rogers,"
"One of the ribs he broke set in a slightly higher position than before and I can't lie comfortably on a surfboard any more because my rib sticks out.
It was an old injury but he flared it up. Now when all the boys go surfing I have to go swimming because I can't lie on my board. I have copped a few good ones in my time but that was right up there."
