Niall Morris Quits Professional Rugby

Monday, October 10th, 2016

The utility back player of Leinster Rugby Niall Morris has decided to call it quits and will not be playing rugby anymore.

The decision was forced on Niall Morris due to the ankle injury that he suffered last year.

Niall, who is just 28 years old, played in the two friends of the Bank of Ireland pre-season games, but could not feature in the third one against Bath. He was not able to play for his team in the first couple of rounds of Guinness PRO 12. After having consultations with a leading UK medical consultant as well as the Leinster medical team, Niall decided to quit the sport and not to further risk his injury.

It is his ankle that has given him a lot of pain and that has made him to end his career sooner than expected. Niall suffered an ankle fracture and dislocation during a game against Bath in May 2015. He was in rehabilitation for 15 months, but felt that his ankle was not the same anymore. He decided to seek further opinion on his ankle and the seriousness of the injury. In the end, he had no other choice, but quit playing rugby.
