England star provides hospital ‘taxi service’ 24 hours after Ireland defeat
England and Exeter Chiefs flanker Don Armand took to the roads yesterday in the bad weather to ferry vulnerable people to and from the hospital.
With another wave of snow hitting the UK, volunteers in 4×4 cars got out on the road to ensure hospitals kept ticking over.
Less than 24 hours earlier the Zimbabwean born back-rower had been playing rugby for England, coming on as a replacement, during their 24-15 defeat to Ireland at Twickenham.
Not the result we wanted. But thank you for all the amazing messages of support this past week. Truly humbling. What a privilege it was to run out at Twickenham today👐

But while most of his teammates were recovering in the warm, Armand got out and made a difference in his local community.
And the 29-year-old earned praise for his public-spirited efforts.
What a fella! Is he really from this planet? After all, his rugby is out of this world! I’m pretty sure if @don_armand got his cape out he’d be able to pick people up and fly them to work. #superhero @chjones9 @ugomonye https://t.co/jag28QWRvd
