Former Saracens star is fighting for his life

Former Saracens hooker and current SuperSport rugby commentator, Ethienne Reynecke, is in a critical condition in hospital due to a blood clot on the brain.

The 36-year-old suffered a stroke last Thursday and is currently in the intensive care unit.

On Tuesday, Reynecke’s condition was described as “stable” while doctors waited for medication to take effect on the clot.

A SuperSport spokesperson told Sport24 on Monday that Reynecke’s father confirmed that doctors were unable to operate due to the swelling on his son’s brain.

He is being kept under sedation.
