He's still very involved in amateur rugby and coaching so perhaps he didn't want to get it fixed until there was a greatly reduced chance of it being mashed again. Rugby is a pretty brutal, full contact sport that isn't for wimps. I live in a town where rugby is everything so you often see players about and the older ones all look the same -built like brick shithouses with less than perfect faces.
