England captain Dylan Hartley hits back at ‘so-called experts’

Northampton Saints skipper Dylan Hartley has published a statement after it was confirmed that he will miss Saints final two games of the Premiership season as well as England’s tour to South Africa

The hooker has not played a minute of rugby since the final game of the 2018 Six Nations against Ireland on March 17th and it was revealed on Monday he will be taking an extended break.

The 32-year-old, who has sustained two previous significant concussions, has been stood down from action until pre-season for the 2018/19 Premiership season.

And it appears that he’s taken exception to the coverage of the news after releasing a statement via Instagram…


Dylan Hartley statement on Dylan Hartley.
Believe it or not this is a photo of me singing and not what is rumoured to be a fat lady (difficult to tell apart I know). I see there’s a lot of so-called experts out there in newspapers, pubs and podcasts recommending what I do with my career.
Funnily enough I’m only listening to the medical professionals and myself.
Fortunately/unfortunately for some I’ll be back next season to help my respective teams push on.
Thank you for your support.
