Waugh- horse toughs it out

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

DE­TER­MINED skip­per Phil Waugh will ig­nore the dis­com­fort of a rup­tured bi­ceps and con­tinue to lead the Waratahs for the rest of the Su­per Rugby competition. The warhorse back­rower pro­duced one of the gut­si­est per­for­mances by even his own lofty stan­dards, as he got through 60 min­utes of Fri­day night’s loss to the Cru­saders in Nel­son de­spite the in­jury. That was an amaz­ing ef­fort af­ter it was feared the in­jury would leave him side­lined for the next three months. Even the New Zealand com­men­ta­tors de­scribed it as a great ef­fort.
