Just Giving campaign set up for Leicester back-rower who remains in intensive care

Taylor Gough remains in intensive care at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham, where the Leicester Tigers back-rower has been since mid-June after being involved in a major road incident.

The 20-year-old suffered multiple injuries, including severe spinal injuries, on the weekend ahead of the squads return to Phase One training at Oval Park and is currently suffering from paralysis and unable to move his legs.

Genge tweeted: “One of our Acad boys had a car crash last month, this is his just giving page for private spinal rehab. Kids a fucking legend if you got a few quid *spare* in these tough times, all of us from the club would appreciate the help.”

The prop also donated £100, telling the youngster to ‘not spend it all on beer’.

Speaking on behalf of the club, Leicester Tigers Chairman Peter Tom said We were all very sad to receive the news and, since finding out, everyone at Tigers has had Taylor in their thoughts.

We have remained in daily contact with his family and will continue to support Taylor and them through this situation.

He is a popular member of our squad and Taylor is one of us. And at Tigers, we look after our own.
