    @Dingo...cheers on the slow mend...another 4-6 weeks to full strength...then about 5-6 months time the surgeon takes the plate and scews out...then down time again while screw holes fill up with bone...

    That sounded like a pretty gnarly crash. Speedy recovery!

    Broken collar-bone...in 3 bits...just had it screwed and plated last week..

    1. I could have loaned him the $15 for a new shovel. ( i know, dramatic effect). 2. Were they the nurses that gave him the catheter and bed baths? if so, jealous

    Such are the risks that come with the sport!
