The teenager from Hull was left fighting for his life, as it was discovered he had a life-threatening blood clotwhich he had sustained from a tackle while playing for his local team.   He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where doctors removed 90 per cent of the clot.  He has made a big recovery, has started walking again and hopes to be able to play rugby when he leaves hospital. Doctors are unable to say if this will be possble due to the surgery he has had.  During his time in hospital Connor was visited by players from Hull Kingston Rovers, Terry Campese and Ben Cockayne, along with head coach Chris Chester and assistant Willie Poching. His aunt, Sara Lynes said it's this type of support that has been a real encouargement, helping Connor progress.  Read the full story.
