Can­cer sur­vivor on bench for Brumbies

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Can­cer sur­vivor Chris­tian Leali­ifano will make his lon­gawaited re­turn to Su­per Rugby for the ACT Brumbies on Fri­day, nearly a year af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with leukaemia. The Wal­laby fly-half, who has been out of ac­tion since his di­ag­no­sis last Au­gust, was named on Tues­day on the bench for the clash against the Welling­ton Hur­ri­canes in Can­berra. The 29 year old Leali­ifano made an emo­tional re­turn last month when he ap­peared in his club's ex­hi­bi­tion match against the Asia Pa­cific Drag­ons in Sin­ga­pore.
