Rugby legend Willie Anderson's health scare a blessing in disguise

Editor's Viewpoint

It probably didn't feel like it at the time to former Irish and Ulster rugby star Willie Anderson, but his serious health scare at the weekend was a blessing in disguise.

When he collapsed at a schools rugby game he thought he was suffering a coronary. It was only when he was rushed to hospital and examined that it was discovered he had a previously unknown underlying cardiac problem that greatly heightened his risk of a stroke. Now he is to undergo corrective surgery. An added bonus is that the school where he is a PE teacher and rugby coach has made it through to the next round of the competition. All's well that ends well.
