Rampaging rugby colossus Stephen Ferris was a sight to behold
It is desperately sad the glittering career of the rugby player Stephen Ferris has been cut short by injury. Without doubt, he could have been one of the true greats of the sport, with his natural animal-like power, allied to supreme athleticism. Regrettably, that is what can happen in sport, and in life itself, when the unexpected intervenes.
Stephen has been forced to retire far too early, but those who have seen him play will never forget how good he was. On the positive side, if there is one, it can be argued that to see him play so brilliantly even for a relatively short time, was better than not seeing him play at all. He was almost the perfect rugby player.
