Dan Robson diagnosed with serious problem to deal blow to Rugby World Cup hopes

It has now been revealed that Dan Robson’s illness is serious, having been diagnosed with blood clots in his leg, which if left untreated could be potentially fatal.

“Dan Robson suffered blood clots which arose spontaneously earlier this week and is being evaluated at the moment,” and RFU spokesman said. “

At this stage it is too early to give a return-to-play date.”

Robson is understood to have highlighted pain in his leg at the start of the week, before being taken to hospital where analysis of the problem revealed the blood clots – which can form in either veins or arteries and can completely block the body’s blood flow if not treated.

He will see a specialist this weekend ahead of further treatment, but no timeframe has been put on his return but it is feared the lay off could be months not weeks.
