Glasgow Warriors' Petrus du Plessis returns to NHS
Glasgow Warriors rugby player Petrus du Plessis has revealed he is returning to the NHS to help in the fight against coronavirus.
The Pro14 season is currently suspended and is not likely to return until August. And so the prop, 38, will be returning to work as a respiratory physiotherapist.
Before embarking on a successful career with Warriors, and former clubs Saracens and London Irish, du Plessis graduated from the University of Salford in 2008 with a degree in physiotherapy.
He announced the news via Twitter: "I’ve registered to go back to the NHS as a respiratory physiotherapist.
"I strongly believe it’s important to have all hands on deck to overcome this virus! #COVID19"
