SOUTH AFRICAN LEG­END VIS­ITS GREY­STONES RUGBY CLUB

Bray People - - News -

HUN­DREDS of boys who play rugby ev­ery Sun­day morn­ing at Grey­stones Rugby Club were amazed to see rugby leg­end Fran­cois Pien­aar strolling to­wards them at the grounds last week­end.

Pien­aar at­tended the train­ing ses­sion to give the lads some tips on their game, sign au­to­graphs and pose for pic­tures with his young fans.

Club Chair­man Sonny Kenny said that the South African player had re­ceived the William Webb El­lis Cup from Nel­son Man­dela at the Rugby World Cup in 1995. He said that it was a great hon­our to re­ceive Pien­aar at Grey­stones Rugby Club.

He was in Ire­land last week­end to give his sup­port to the ‘Lust for Life’ web­site, aimed at help­ing men un­der­stand Testos­terone De­fi­ciency. The cam­paign will en­cour­age men over 40 to con­tact their GPs for a clin­i­cal as­sess­ment if they sus­pect they have low lev­els of testos­terone.

‘Men all over the world are slow to visit their GP if they are con­cerned about their health,’ said the rugby star. ‘I’m told that this isn’t any dif­fer­ent here in Ire­land and it re­ally is a shame, as men are ex­pos­ing them­selves to un­nec­es­sary risk by not get­ting ap­pro­pri­ate med­i­cal ad­vice at the ear­li­est pos­si­ble op­por­tu­nity.’

Testos­terone De­fi­ciency can cause tired­ness, weight gain, loss of li­bido and feel­ing down. For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.lust­for­life.ie.
